A large format monograph on the life and works of National Artist Napoleon Abueva (1930 - 2018). Trained in the academic representational style, Abueva turned out to be the country's sole vanguard for modern sculpture. He has used various Philippine hardwoods such as molave, acacia, ipil, kamagong, langka, and bamboo, exploiting their natural sculptural expressiveness. He has mastered the industrial materials such as metal, stainless steel, concrete, iron, bronze, brass, as well as abode, marble, alabaster and coral. This book provides a rare opportunity to view over 300 of his works, including his most important pieces.
