Rizal Park ?

Citizen of the World said...

Correct, Sidney! The Luneta. It is found on the right side of the Rizal Monument.

What is my price? ;-)

Hmmmm.... let me think about it first, hehe. When will bloggers in Manila ever have a meeting?

Dylan,

Yes, that's statue is in Rizal park.

That,and 3 other statues, actually used to stand at the foot of the Jones bridge during the American Colonial period. I believe on of them was destroyed during the 1945 Battle of Manila and the two were transferred to Ermita where they sit today outside the Court of Appeals building (old UP Campus)

Is there a price for that to? hehe

Citizen of the World said...

Ha ha ha! It's going to cost me an arm and a leg getting prizes for all of you, hehe!

Maybe a night out in Manila will do.

Interesting data there. Would you happen to know who made them, and who commissioned these statues? wow! Two others infront of the Court of Appeals?! I used to frequent that place. Too bad I wasn't blogging then.

If im not mistaken, they are by the noted Filipino sculptor Isabelo Tampingco...
