Spoliarium by Juan Luna Y Novicio. Exhibit in Old Senate Hall

This Hall was originally designed to be a library in the early 1920s during the American colonial period, when the architect Juan Arellano revised the plans of Ralph Harrington Doane in order to convert the building to the seat of the legislature. The Senate was then led by Manuel L. Quezon, the leader of the movement for Philippine independence from the United States. Information from the website of the National Museum of the Philippines
