DAMAS ROMANAS, 1882. (Juan Luna)
The altar to the left is called Lararium which is found in most houses where the Romans make their offerings to the gods and their ancestor spirits. The dogs are attendants to the virgin goddess Diana, while the doves are sacred to Venus. One can say that the two Damas represent the two goddesses. - Eric Agoncillo Ambata

Museum Brands: Not an official re-branding but an iconic treatment of Lopez Memorial Museum (@Lopez_Muse on Twitter) as advertised in Business World Magazine, July 2, 2012.
I utilized the iconic painting of the 19th Century Master Juan Luna’s Espana y Filipinas. The allegory of Spain and the Philippines is framed inside the shape of the shield from the Coat of Arms of the Philippines at the turn of the 20th Century.
The calligraphic figure Mother Spain is pointing at is the ancient Philippine script called ‘Baybayin’ of the initials ELF, Eugenio Lopez Foundation.
