~last night, as tradition... we had our family reunion at sheraton hotel...
on my way home, i noticed this sculpture outside the restaurant...
i was intrigued by the peculiar shape of it and how it was placed...
normally, you wouldn't even notice it, but since i'm getting the hang of blogging everything i see... ^-^ i decided to share this with you...

thru wikipedia... apparently this piece was done by a famous artist named Napoleón Isabelo Veloso-Abueva ,born January 26 1930, popularly known as Napoleón Abueva. He is a native boholano.
He is a sculptor given the distinction as the Philippines' National Artist.
He is also entitled as the "Father of Modern Philippine Sculpture".
At present, he's teaching Industrial Design at
DLSU-College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts.

i'm happy to say i'm learning a lot with my filipino roots. ^-^
