I Want to See the Spoliarium!


ImageWe are planning to go the National Museum on Sunday because I want to see the Spoliarium, the “Mona Lisa” of the Philippines.  It is a painting done by Juan Luna that won awards in Barcelona, Spain.  It is, according to Wikipedia, ‘the Philippines most  prized painting.”

How dare I call myself a Filipino and not go and see a national pride and treasure! And what kind of mother am I if I do not encourage my kids to see this?

The above screen shot is of the 360 view of the Spoliarium.  While it is very beautiful (but difficult on the eye), there is no substitute for the real thing.
