National Museum of the Philippines

         Here is the separate post I'm talking about. Mainly of the photos I took in our visit at the National Museum, but not all, since there were too many, just those that I really liked/loved and those that caught my attention. I took the liberty of editing them so that it wouldn't be just the same as how you would see/view it in the museum/other pictures, though this is not what you would really see in terms of coloration/vividness because the pictures I took were already affected by the lighting of the galleries. And please do correct me if I've entered wrong information about the artworks. 

In the picture are two stained-glass windows from the Marble Hall.

More of Tampinco's sculptures in the museum, such a great artist, loved him!"

This one, I stared the longest time. Mesmerized by it. 

I heart Jose Joya! Love his works :)

The 1884 Spoliarium by Juan Luna

Really a magnificent work!

      That's about it (Maybe I'd add some more soon).I hope this would encourage you to visit our museums, if you still haven't. Also, there are more great artworks and historical artifacts to see, so visit our museums already!
