ARC 55 Art Appreciation

“MacArthur Leyte Landing Memorial National Park”


Basic information:
Location: Palo, Leyte
Designer: Anastacio Caedo
Material: Bronze
Date of inauguration: October 20, 1981
Dedicated to: General Douglas MacArthur, his entourage, and all the soldiers who
fought and died in the battles of Leyte during the World War II
This is my favorite sculpture, because it always reminds me of my childhood,
and it was dedicated some of our heroes who fought for us. Being a child who is
curious why there are monuments like this, it feels so weird and afraid seeing that
they are not moving but sooner and later I really do appreciate what this
sculpture’s purpose and meaning. It pays respect and salute to the soldiers who
died for us so that we will become free from the Japanese conquerors. It also
reminds me of MacArthur’s iconic words or promise “I shall return”. But the most
important sculpture of my life that God made for me is my family.
