The recreation of Juan Luna’s home in Ilocos Norte reveals not just the artist but also the simple man behind the person we know as a patriot.
Juan Luna’s personality and ideology are stamped on his canvases. Hence, learning about his paintings could be the shortest way possible to know him as a distinguished man, a patriot and as an individual.
A visit to the Juan Luna Shrine in Badoc can make that possible, with a bonus feeling of leaving the shrine a little overwhelmed probably because of awe and a revived sense of nationalism.
