Campbelltown Public Art | Jose Rizal

See that plaque in the back ground there!

I bet that has the artists name on it. Unfortunately the fence encompasses this sculpture as he bravely solutes his Philippino countrymen and clutches his book. Jose Rizal was many things! Writer, poet, philosophizer  😂 but most importantly a voice for the Philippians Nation which at the time was resisting Spanish occupation.

Jose Rizal is credited with writing two novels before being executed by the Spanish for rebellion and  inciting dissent. Rizals death is said to have inspired the rebellion and is unofficially hailed as  one of the Philippeans greatest hero's.
