Made by sculptor Juan Sajid Imao, seven of the eight bronze panels on the doors of the Ateneo de Manila High School's St. Stanislaus Kostka Chapel represent the seven "I am" statements of Jesus in the Gospel of St. John:
  • I am the bread of life.
  • I am the light of the world.
  • I am the door of the sheep.
  • I am the good shepherd.
  • I am the resurrection and the life.
  • I am the way, the truth, and the life.
  • I am the true vine.
The eighth panel, upper right in the first photo, contains the letters IHS, a monogram of the name of Jesus Christ.

Beautiful, graceful panels in the great tradition of Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise.
