Tourists viewing the superstar of the museum – “The Spolarium” which was created by the famed Filipino painter / hero Juan Luna.

Again. The facial expression. It’s as if something bad will happen to her after entering that door.

Sculpture by Rizal. I love how it conveys a story. It’s called “Revenge of a Mother” or something like that.

The Manunggul burial jar. This sculpture is important because it’s a proof of the pre-Hispanic Filipino’s belief of the afterlife.

First thing that crossed my mind after seeing this: I hope that this Arch was materialized. Like the arches in Paris.

I never thought you can use jade plus bronze as a medium. Impressive.
