Oblation plaza is a garden where the famous Oblation statue is located. It is in front of Quezon Hall at UP Diliman.

The UP Oblation

The Oblation is a concrete statue by Filipino artist Guillermo E. Tolentino. Depicting a man facing upward with arms outstretched, symbolizing selfless offering of oneself to his country, it serves as the iconic symbol of the University of the Philippines.

The original sculpture of the Oblation is now at the fourth floor of the UP Main Library.

History of Oblation

Then UP College of Fine Arts Professor, Guillermo E. Tolentino, made the Oblation, with the help of Anastacio T. Caedo, his student apprentice, who also served as the model for the sculpture. Caedo would later succeed Tolentino's post as Fine Arts professor after the death of his teacher.
