Tanya Lopez, executive director of the museum, said the show is also part of their celebration of the Philippine Quincentennial activity. So it is very timely that March 16 marks the arrival of the Spaniards to the Philippines.

Samson, meanwhile, said their works depict the lifestyle of Filipinos in the early days – how they went about their daily lives. “It is said that history is our greatest teacher. If we don’t learn from our history we might be repeating the same mistakes committed by our ancestors all over again. So we should adopt good practices by learning from their experience,” she said.*
