"Konting bato,
konting semento:

Heroes' busts such as this, used to be so common in public schools, often decorating libraries, the principal's office and even social halls of elementray schools. Now, it seems, they've all gone to monumento heaven. I found this well-casted cement bust of Andres Bonifacio (Katipunan founder, if you recall your 3rd grade history) in a house demolition shop, and immediately snapped it. I haven't figured out what to do with it, but the cement-faced Great Plebeian makes a good book-end at the moment.
