Bale Batu An Artist’s Burial Temple

At the foot of Mount Arayat in the Philippines stands a large, pyramid-shaped structure. It’s called Bale Batu, and it is the creation of a local artist named Jesus Padilla. The man, called Apung Susing by his fellow artists, spent years working on Bale Batu. Literally, for more than half of his life, he worked on building this temple. The result was something you’d never expect.
