Rustan’s presents a special exhibition of the religious imagery collection by renowned santero Maximo Vicente, Sr.
The exhibit, which will open on April 22 at Rustan’s Makati fifth floor, will present the creations of the Talleres De Maximo Vicente, which Vicente had set up at Calle R. Hidalgo in Quiapo, Manila in 1908 and later moved to M. Adriatico Street in Ermita.
The talleres was known to produce images that could rival those made by the best artisans of Europe, boasting artistry and workmanship. Each commissioned image takes anywhere from three to 12 months to complete.
Examples of Talleres de Maximo Vicente handiworks include the Santo Niño de Praga of San Beda College in Mendiola and San Beda College Alabang, the statues of the main and side altars of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on Broadway Avenue, the crucified Christ in Trece Martires, Virgen Milagrosa, San Vicente de Paul, Sta. Luisa in San Marcelino Church, Nuestra Señora de Candelaria in Iloilo, and the statues found at Assumption Convent in San Lorenzo Village and Alfonso de Liguori Church in Magallanes.
