    This holder is named after General Emilio Aguinaldo, first President of the Philippines (1899–1901).  By nature, carabaos are generally docile animals but they can be deadly when pushed to anger.  General Aguinaldo admired this quality and surrounded himself with carabao décor in his mansion in Cavite.  One of his chairs has a carabao head as a backrest.  A smiling carabao supports the famous independence balcony.  In a battle between Filipino and Americans in April of 1899, General Lawton’s men were shouting at Filipino troops when a herd of carabaos attacked the Americans.  The American forces could not explain why the beasts did not attack the Filipinos.  General Aguinaldo believed that the carabao symbolizes the Filipino character- calm, patient and hardworking but strong and fierce when provoked.
