War in heaven

sculpture of Saint Michael slaying the serpent "Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back."
~Revelation 12:7

In the courtyard of San Miguel Church (see yesterday's post) stands this 12-foot cold cast bronze sculpture of Saint Michael slaying the dragon, which symbolizes the devil, created by Florante Caedo.

Very dramatic and dynamic sculpture.

That's a powerful sculpture! The dragon looks fierce, which I guess is how dragons are supposed to look.

Thanks for the info on church attendance in the Philippines. I was surprised, as in this country, attendance is dropping and in other countries is almost non-existent.

Very exciting!
Those angels didn't (don't?) have an easy life.
