ALAB NG PUSO
by Daniel dela Cruz (2018)
ONE BONIFACIO HIGH STREET PARK
"Alab ng Puso" (Fire in the Heart) by sculptor Daniel de la Cruz is the BGC tribute to the Filipino soldier. It portrays the Filipino soldier, with his weapon set aside, reading a letter from his family.
Behind him is a steel panel with the shining words of "Lupang Hinirang." On the steps are words that mean "love", "sacrifice", "freedom", "peace", and "hope" in Filipino and in a number of other Philippine languages.
In this sculpture, BGC recognizes the history of this area as the former home of our soldiers. We salute their sacrifices and offer them our gratitude.
