AREA WHERE THE MONUMENT SHOULD BE PUT UP
Our group came up with a design wherein Jose Rizal stands 22 steps above the ground with a height of thirty-five feet. This design was inspired by the original monument of Jose Rizal in Laguna. The monument is composed of twenty-two steps, representing the twenty-two languages that Rizal can speak. The height is 35 feet for Rizal died at the age of thirty-five. In our monument, Jose Rizal is wearing a barong tagalog which represents his nationality. An infinity sign can be found on the 22nd step where Rizal stands. This sign represents his infinite potential when he was alive. He was an actor, an agriculturist, an animal lover, an anthropologist, an archeologist, a botanist, a businessman, a cartographer, a commentator, a conchologist, an ethnologist, an educator, a farmer, a historian, a journalist, a linguist, a lover of truth, a mythologist, a nationalist, an ophthalmologist, a pharmacologist, a philosopher, a physician, a plant lover, a poet, a politician, a propagandist, a reformer, a researcher, a revolutionist, a sculptor, a traveler and many more.
AREA WHERE OUR MONUMENT SHOULD BE PUT UP:
Our group decided to locate our monument in front of every schools in the Philippines because Jose Rizal is a good role model for students just like what he once said, “Ang kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan.” This monument also represents the unlimited and limitless opportunity of an individual to take in lots of information.
