Did You Know?

Philippine National Artist Napoleon Abueva was born on January 26, 1930 in Bohol.

The sculptor -- whose works include the double crucifix inside the Parish of the Holy Sacrifice at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, and the Transfiguration, a towering Christ figure at the Eternal Gardens Memorial Park in Caloocan City -- studied at the UP School of Fine Arts under Guillermo Tolentino.

He later became dean of the UP College of Fine Arts. Abueva was named a National Artist in sculpture in 1977.
