Parial is a graphic artist, sculptor, painter and a teacher, all rolled into one. He graduated in 1969 with a bachelor of fine arts from the University of Santo Tomas where he also taught printmaking and painting. Known for his folk and mythological interest in his art where the woman figure is central to the composition, he has garnered top prizes from almost all the leading art competition in the country. In 1972, the Cultural Center of the Philippines honored him as one of the year's Thirteen Artist awardees. He has exhibited extensively in the Philippines, Canada and the United States and his works rest in many private collections and institutions. Mario has left a significant impact on the art world as a wonderful modern artist.

This charming painting is executed in wax crayon, pen and ink on paper depicting a young Filipino girl surrounded by colorful bouquets of yellow and pink flowers. The composition is busy and full but appealing to the eye painted in a most fascinating medium. The wax crayons used give this work a soft smooth feel but also of depth where Parial used the backside of a brush to scratch lines adding greater detail and contrast in texture. The face of the young girl is striking with a myriad blend of browns, reds and some green and again this texture accentuating facial features created by scratching wax away. Her soft blue dress also has a few loose flowers that have fallen onto it pulling together this theme that she is just as young and beautiful as the surrounding flowers getting ready to blossom into adult hood.

This original composition is executed on paper and has been mounted down to the backside of a cardboard advertising signmeasuring 15.25 x 18.5 inches. The condition is excellent other than some minor loss along the top left edge and lower left  edge from a previous frame. Their are also a couple small spots of wax that have been removed at her shoulder and to the right of her head level to her mouth. The images provided accurately represent the condition, quality and aesthetic beauty of this fine work.
