Julie Lluch's sculpture of St. Ignatius of Loyola at the Ateneo de Manila High School
The sculpture of St. Ignatius of Loyola at the Ateneo de Manila High School is by artist Julie Lluch, who works both in terracotta and bronze. He is depicted as holding a book, which represents his Spiritual Exercises. Both the book and his kneeling stance signify that this is a representation of his time at the town of Manresa in Catalonia, Spain where his ideas for the Spiritual Exercises germinated, at the banks of the Cardoner River.

I really like the form of the pose and his face. Hilda, is this high school public or private?

His book has helped so many.

Dear Hilda, thanks for your heads-up on my blog just now. It made me investigate more about Station XIII. I wrote to you about it in the comments.

Have a joyous Easter after this Saturday of waiting.

A fine sculpture...I am especially impressed by the face and the eyes -- they show his strength and intelligence.

Hope you're experiencing a joyful Easter weekend!
