The holy water font of the Manila Cathedral looks very well-used. I like that.

An unusual and beautiful font. I like he way the cloth holds the water.

Very interesting piece. The light certainly accentuates the sculpture's work beautifully. Thanks Hilda.

Hello ;)

Are there still many wooden Santos in the markets ?

I've seen some people from Manila sell Santos on eBay.

Greetings,

Just catching up on the blogs after returning from a 3 week trip across country. Your posts are fantastic as usual. I love this one. I have never seen such a beautiful vessel for Holy Water!

Excellent photo, Hilda. Interesting sculpture, too. The "angel" seems to be standing on fish...what's that all about?

I have only ever seen little fonts holding holy water. I like the angel sculpture holding the water.

Hi there, I followed a link to your blog given at Luna's place. You have a very nice blog here. I have enjoyed my visit. Your photos are wonderful and this one of the beautiful angel is fantastic.

The most ornate font I've ever seen.

I like it also Hilda. I like the statue too. Either your photo moved me or my eyes are just irritated but I'm suddenly overcome with this weepy feeling.

I'm also glad the font is getting a great deal of use. The green sheen is actually fairly atractive.
