Ajero所利用的熔岩是来自经由雨水沿着马永火山斜坡冲刷下来而得,然后搬运到附近城镇的。

[Vicente Ajero, Rock Sculptor]:
“I can’t say that I’m happy about the volcano erupting. The lava is dangerous. But these are the materials that I need to create my art works.”
Vicente Ajero,岩石雕刻家说:
“我并不是说我很高兴火山爆发,熔岩是有危险性的。但是这些喷发物却是创作我的艺术作品所需要的材料。”

It’s been nine years since Ajero began his volcano-inspired craft.

“I dream of becoming famous. I didn’t reach fame by being a singer. Maybe by sculpting these lava rocks, I will be renowned.”

His souvenir items are worth $2 to $11 U.S. dollars and his large sculptures sell for up to $320 U.S. dollars. He caters to foreign and local tourists as well as business establishments.
他的纪念品每项价值2~11美元不等,同时其大型雕刻品可卖到高达320美元。他迎合了外国和本地的观光客以及一些企业团体。

Honesto Deoda,观光客说:
“他的作品令人印象深刻,因为他发现了使用废料的方法,并且重新赋予新的生命在其中。”

The near perfect-cone-shaped Mayon Volcano draws thousands of tourists to the Bicol region. Many locals make a living selling souvenirs depicting the volcano.
马永火山以其近乎完美的圆锥形,吸引了数千名观光客到Bicol地区来。许多当地居民就以贩卖刻画火山的纪念品为生。

Despite the hazardous eruption warning, locals and foreigners continue flocking to Albany province to watch the volcano.
尽管有危险爆发的警告,许多当地居民和外国人仍继续聚集到Albany省去观赏火山。

Mayon is the most active of 22 volcanoes in the country, having erupted more than 50 times in the past four centuries.
