This unexpected statute representing the arrival of nuns in the area in 1904 is naive and funny, almost cartoonesque and makes for an original, if not really artistic, picture on the boulevard. This is at least something to be done on this otherwise uninspiring promenade.

I am Italian, totally trustworthy.
Well, Michelangelo is not in Dumaguete, that's for sure.
If it is thinked to be a kitsch piece, well,,,well done!
But I fear they are serious about that!

It was along the way to the famous Silliman University . THe place was very beautiful since it is along a shore line and the wind was blowing while you were walking along the peaceful park .

It's just a statue along Rizal boulevard. Take few photo for few seconds and that's it. Except for a writing besides the statue, there is nothing to appreciate.

It's located along Rizal Boulevard, the main drag, across the popular restaurant, Sans Rival. You can't miss it.

It was given a fresh coat of paint a year or two ago. That helped.

The monument marks the arrival of the Catholic sisters in Dumaguete. They founded the first St. Paul school in the Philippines (early-20th century). According to Wikipedia, there are some 40 St. Paul schools in the country at the present time.

From the SPUD website:

St. Paul University Dumaguete was founded on October 29, 1904 by the seven Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres (SPC). The first ISO-Certified Educational Institution in the Visayas and Mindanao, a PAASCU and PACUCOA Accredited and was awarded as the Region's Most Sustainable and Eco-Friendly School
