UKKIL is a monumental project which multiawarded dance scholar Ms. Amilbangsa began years ago. As noted sculptor Prof. Abdulmari Imao writes, “This book is a revelation of the folk artistic heritage, tradition, and culture of the Sulu Archipelago…and recommended to all readers who wish to know and understand the famous ukkil arts motifs and designs. Ligaya F. Amilbangsa’s extensive research and in-depth analysis of the design elements make her most authoritative about these subjects. The Sulu people are appreciative and greatly indebted to her for this publication.”

The book shows, through painstaking research and documentation of artifacts and practices, how art pervades the everyday life of the people of the Sulu Archipelago, such that no divide exists between beauty and function, between artistry and utility.
