This is my tribute to the woman-warrior of Pototan, Iloilo – Teresa Magbanua y Ferraris, the Visayan Joan of Arc.
Humbled to present this painting to the “now generation” the importance of her contribution in protecting the Filipino culture through her acts of courage and unwavering true Filipino spirit. She has the soul of the Philippine Eagle – selfless, loyal…
…the only bird that can fly even in the most difficult storm.
This is also a tribute to Filipino women who even in their most silent, continue to soar in the most trying times. By soaring, it doesn’t mean heights alone but the depths of the heart.
