The Oblation Fountain

UP_7174d

(The newly restored fountain in front of the Oblation statue at the University of the Philippines.)

The Oblation was inspired by a heroic poem and has become a symbol of selfless  dedication and patriotism. The same call to all graduates of the University to be of service.

The fountain provides a fitting setting to this sculpture and the noble ideals it symbolizes.


Oblation (n) – an offering, sacrifice.
