Rizal at 150: Various Images of Dr. Jose P. Rizal

The Philippines' National Hero: Celebrating his 150th birth Anniversary.

Various representations of Dr. José P. Rizal (June 19, 1861 – December 30, 1896), a Filipino polymath, nationalist and the most prominent
advocate for reforms in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. Considered as "The Pride of the Malay Race", Dr. José Rizal
was executed by a Spanish colonial firing squad on December 30, 1896. He spent his final days incarcerated as an 'enemy of the state'

"Dr. Jose Rizal is perhaps the only hero in the world who has the most number of monuments in different countries"
(- Rachel C. Barawid, "Rizal conquers the Facebook generation", Manila Bulletin, June 17, 2011).

Here are some I've encountered and visually documented through the years ...

I highly recommend that you view the award-winning "José Rizal" movie (in Tagalog, with English subtitles) as directed by Marilou Diaz-Abaya http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_Rizal_(film) to learn more about the man behind the face.
