The U.P. Oblation Statue

This Kid is Nathaniel Marquez my inaanak (Godson). Posted as the U.P. Oblation Statue. He told me "Ninong si Jesus ba yan? Bakit wala sa cross?" Godfather is that Jesus? Why he's not on the cross? Come to think of it with this kid telling me as he seen it, a great mind of a 5 year old. I told him he is not Jesus Christ he is the symbol of U.P. Accademic Freedom as The late Fernando Poe Sr. post for the model, but I'm wrong as to the historians and U.P. Students I hear Fernando Poe Sr. is not the model of the Oblation Statue




This is the University of The Philippines Oblation Staue. The Oblation was made by Professor Guillermo E. Tolentino with the help of his assistant Anastacio T. Caedo, his student apprentice. According to a book tribute to Guillermo Tolentino, it was Anastacio Caedo, not Fernando Poe Sr., who served as the model for the sculpture. Caedo would later become a professor of Fine Arts in the University and the successor of the deceased Guillermo Tolentino. Acquiring great skills and talents from his guru, Professor Anastacio Caedo achieved great accomplishment not only in the Philippines, but worldwide. He built a monument of Dr. Jose Rizal for the German government that was Installed in famous JoseRizal Park in Idelstien, Germany among others.
