Come to the NM tomorrow, December 30, and view artworks for free by our national hero, Jose Rizal. One of the more important pieces in the National Fine Arts Collection is this terracotta sculpture “Mother’s Revenge” by Rizal. It features a mother dog attacking a crocodile that harmed her pup. It is a National Cultural Treasure.
