RUSTAN’S: Talleres de Maximo Vicente Sale and Exhibit

Rustan’s held a successful event entitled “Talleres de Maximo Vicente” at the 5th floor of Rustan’s Makati featuring the finest works and craftsmanship of Maximo Vicente Sr., the master sculptor of religious imagery. The sale-exhibit showcased various religious images from the private collection of Maximo Vicente Jr. and his wife, Soledad Hernandez-Vicente. Among the 92 pieces of artwork at the exhibition, most of the sculptures had already been sold aside from the life-size sculpture of Our Lady of the Assumption, which is the last original work of Vicente before he died in 1964. Although the exhibit has ended, Vicente’s masterful craftsmanship can still be viewed and appreciated since Vicente’s extraordinary works of art could also be found in some churches around the Philippines, and they are most likely used in various processions around the country as well.
