may statue na daw si lapu-lapu sa luneta?

Wala, nasa Cebu ang monumento ni Lapu-Lapu. Baka mas mauna pa ang rebulto ni Velarde sa Luneta kaysa kay lapu-Lapu. 033102bigangry_1_prv.gif

NATIONAL hero Jose Rizal has new company.

A 50-feet tall monument of revered Cebuano warrior Lapu Lapu has just risen in the middle of Agrifina Circle on Rizal Park, Manila, almost mirroring the statue of national hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal

The brass statue was a donation from the Korean Freedom League which presented it as a gift to Filipinos.

A brainchild of former Tourism Secretary Richard Gordon, the project was conceived to give recognition to the first Asian who fought against foreign invasion.

“Lapu Lapu is one of the greatest Filipino heroes. His bravery and role in repulsing Spanish invaders long ago dramatized the capability of the Filipino to rise above adversity and believe in their selves,” said Gordon.

He said the location of the statue of Lapu Lapu is highly significant. From the shores of Laguna de Bay, following the pathway to Luneta Park, one will find the brass statue of Lapu Lapu behind that of Rizal. “Lapu Lapu was the first Asian to lead a successful uprising against foreign invasion while Rizal was the first Asian to spur the idea of anti-colonialism,” he added.

“Having the statues of Rizal and Lapu Lapu at the old Bagumbayan (now Rizal Park or Luneta) is highly historical. It is our way of giving recognition to two great men in Philippine history.”

“Bagumbayan,” Gordon said, “is the new country which Rizal dreamt of, but never saw: A country free from oppression and colonial bondage.”

Tourism department Officer-In-Charge Oscar Palabyab said Lapu Lapu was chosen, not because of his victory over Ferdinand Magellan, but because of what he stands for in history.

Lapu Lapu is known as the leader who defeated the Spanish conquistador in April 1521. After the historic battle, it took 35 years before the Spaniards set foot again on Philippine shores.

The statue depicts Lapu Lapu, not in battle, but standing guard, holding his kampilan (concealed in its scabbard) firmly planted on the ground. His face conveys strength and determination, but with kindness and a stance that exudes power and vigilance.

Its sculptor, Juan Sajid Imao, explained: “The monument shows Lapu Lapu as strong and peace-loving but at the same time ready to defend himself against those who trample on his cherished freedom.”

Sajid Imao, whose parents hail from Sulu and Marikina, was named one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines in 2001.

Though slowly losing his eyesight, the noted sculptor still managed to complete the statue using his artistic skill and imagination.

A Lapu Lapu monument is also situated in Mactan Cebu, fronting the sea. A city was also named after Lapu Lapu in due recognition of his role in repulsing Spanish invaders in the 1500s.

Bahkit kasi sa ISANG PERA inilagay yang si Lapu-Lapu, kaya di tuloy makilala ng mga kabataan? Mas nabigyan importansiya pa si Ninoy ng kwestionable pa ang pagiging bayani?

Di ko alam kung tutoo yang sa Luneta Monument na yan.

NO MALICE PLEASE! IM JUST FRANK!!!

FYI:

Mactan Myth

There is no historical evidence that Lapu-Lapu killed Ferdinand Magellan in a one-on-one duel during the Battle of Mactan on April 27, 1521. Nothing of the sort was was never mentioned by Antonio Pigafetta, chronicler of the Magellan expedition and the lone available source on the subjects. His account: Magellan was hit first on the right leg by a poison arrow, then on the arm by a bamboo spear while a bolo slashed his left leg. When he fell, a swarm of attackers finished him off with a hail of hacks and stabs.
