The following photos of the works of Rafael Asuncion, Justiniano and Mariano El Major (or maybe of El Minor) were provided to us by Sonny Asuncion Rayos during his last visit to Manila. Only very few of our relatives are aware of the existence of some valuable works and masterpieces of our forefathers in these museums and in private collections. We owe a lot then to relative like Sonny for his untiring hunt for our lost treasures.
Here is Sonny:
Rafael Asuncion and his Peso designs
Pedro Paterno and the Five and Ten peso note of the first Philippine Republic
Justiniano Asuncion’s The Passing Of The Patriarch
Mariano Asuncion’s Nuestra Senora De La Paz
