Taguig Rep. Lani Cayetano marked Rizal Day in a memorable way as she joined other government officials in launching a 3D printed monument of the national hero.

The monument, which is located at the DOST Plaza in Bicutan, Taguig, was designed by Professor Jose Manuel Sicat. It was made by the Advanced Manufacturing Center of the Department of Science and Technology- Metals Industry Research and Development Center (DOST-MIRDC).

In a Facebook post, Cayetano said the 3D monument symbolizes the contributions of Rizal to history, arts and sciences.

“Your legacy lives on, Gat Jose Rizal! Ang iyong galing at kabayanihan ay inspirasyon para sa aming lahat!” she said.

Also present at the launch were DOST Secretary Fortunato dela Peña and National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) Chairman Rene Escalante.
