Item details

The surprising Nine Muses of the Arts, located at the UP Diliman campus, is a tribute to the arts, from the traditional media of painting and music to new media: cinema and computer art. The function of his public works lies in the way they inspire respect for previous generations and remind the viewers of the past, of heroism, of the moments that made history, while keeping a watchful eye over the present. The nine muses represent architecture, dance, film, literature, music, painting, photography, sculpture, and theater. They are placed on a ring-shaped pedestal hollow in the middle, allowing people to look at the sculpture from below.
