The Musée du quai Branly celebrates the diversity of ancient Philippine art dating from before the archipelago's 7,000 islands were colonised by Europeans in the 16th-century.
The exhibition is the first of its kind in Europe, and comprises a selection of 310 works selected from public and private collections in the Philippines, Europe and the US.
On display is a mix of sculpture, jewellery, armour, textiles and costumes.
The exhibition is divided into two sections: one examining the traditional art indigenous to the Northern Highlands region — inspired by gods, war and magic; while the other section looks at art from the southern islands, with visible influences from that region's trading partners in India, Indonesia, Arabia and China.
