This sculpture of the nameless Filipino revolutionaries stands for more than a hundred years now, yet the struggle for a true revolution is probably far from completion. The sculpture is now titled Alaala ng Bayang Filipino sa mga Bayani ng (18)96 (literally “Homage of the Filipino People to the Heroes of 96”) and was made by Ramon Lazaro Martinez in 1911.
