A gift from the artist to Larry Alcala

Known for his body of work chronicling idyllic Malabon life—with works that depict heroism, heritage and virtue—Legazpi has melded into his art a distinct Filipino character that bears with it a sense of rural hominess; an appreciation for the humble way of life despite the vicissitudes of the passing eras.

This very work by the artist gives us a peek into the rural ways of life. A look back to a much simpler era, Legazpi depicts an almost idealized yet undoubtedly nostalgic image that is shared by the Filipino public consciousness.
