BACOLOD, Philippines - An iconic sculpture will be unveiled this week on the front grounds of The Negros Museum, which is now housed in what used to be the Provincial Agricultural Building . Titled BAO: The Unbowed Carabao, the sculpture BAO is a tribute to the Spirit of the Visayan Artists.  BAO features the artistry of Negrense artists, sculptor Paeng Paderna and mosaic artist Lisa de Leon-Zayco.

The masterpiece was commissioned by Angelica Berrie, who says this of the intention of the project: “The narrative of survival through economic, political, and social turmoils in the sugar industry is a tale of endurance and resilience visualized through delicate mosaics overlaid on a five-ton creature born from our Filipino imagination.”

A back-to-back exhibition of de Leon-Zayco and Paderna, titled Coming Home, will also run at The Negros Museum for the entire month of May, 2019.
