Eureka!

I had no success trying to find out the name of the artist who created the sculpture in yesterday's post, but in the course of my search, I finally discovered who created the alien-looking sculpture inside Fort Santiago in the old walled city of Intramuros which I posted back in October of 2009. It is the work of Filipino artist Eduardo Castrillo, who specializes in metal (mainly bronze and brass) sculptures, and is titled "Youth's Cry of Defiance."

The juxtaposition of this very modern sculpture with the old building behind it is very intresting.

Another stylized sculpture, but this one has an element of funky to it I can appreciate. You've been doing this blog a long time, Hilda! :-)
