    This wax seal is fittingly named after the series YAGNUS, which is the reverse of SUNGAY.  Sungay is the Tagalog term for horn.  I have commissioned Patrick Cabral to design a font exclusively for this series.  The design of the font is inspired by the qualities of the Philippine Buffalo coupled with Patrick’s unique style.
