Emulsion lift on Papemelroti chipboard – A large and elaborate mural of the deposed dictator Ferdinand Marcos and his family at the official Marcos Museum and Mausoleum in Ilocos Norte.

“…A man especially, a leader, has many dreams, many illusions. He dreams not for himself alone but most especially for his people. That’s why he is a leader; he assumes the burdens of many people. He thinks from them, works for them, and, if possible, he takes all the blows, all the pains, all the wounds, all the injuries that would otherwise go to the people. He takes them quietly and calmly without too much dramatics. And a leader, if he is truly a leader, acquires a passion for anonymity.”
