Cover. Saintly images, or santos,make up the unique art from of the Philippines when it was a Spanish colony. Made by Filipino woodcarvers and sculptors from about 1565 to 1898, santos have become major collector’s items in the Philippines, although they are still adored as spiritual objects in average traditional households. Cover shows a 17th century image of one of the most loved santos figures, San Roque (St. Roch), protector from plagues and diseases. He is always represented holding a staff and flanked by an attendant and his pet dog.
