The “kalesa” is a horse-drawn carriage introduced to the Philippines during the time of the Spanish colonizers from 1521 to 1898. Different versions of the kalesa were used as land transportation of the elite, of the locals, as well as for transporting farm produce to market or materials for construction. Till today kalesas are visible in heritage towns and cities for tourist use as well as for traditional uses. - This piece by Enrique Cachero, filipino artist. Available for sale.
