It is his sculptural masterpiece portraying numerous figures around an obelisk that includes events leading up to the formation of the revolutionary group named "Kataastaasang Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan" or Katipunan/KKK for short led by Andrés Bonifacio. The three steps leading to the monument represents the three centuries of Spanish rule (333 years), while the octagonal base with the 8 rays of the sun from the Philippine flag symbolizes the eight key provinces (as written on the surrounding pavement) where Martial Law was first declared by the Governor-General when the Katipunan held major uprisings there against the Spanish authorities - the very location of this monument. actually depicting the place of the first such encounter by Andrés Bonifacio and the Katipunan with the Spanish colonial army on August 3, 1896. Jose Rizal Monument Rizal Park, also known as Luneta Park or colloquially Luneta, is a historical urban park located in the heart of the city of Manila, Philippines The Rizal Monument consists of an obelisk set upon a platform, with a bronze sculpture at the base of the obelisk. It is located near the site where Rizal was executed on December 30, 1896. In 1961, a plan to renovate Rizal Park resulted in a stainless steel pylon being superimposed above the stonework obelisk of the Rizal Monument, increasing the structure’s height to 30.5 meters. The modification was broadly disapproved of, and the pylon was removed by 1962. A competition for the design of the memorial attracted the interest of several well-known sculptors from around the world. The first place winning design, however, was not constructed due to the failure of the sculptor to post a bond for the duration of the monument’s creation. Instead, what was constructed was the second place design by Swiss sculptor Richard Kissling. The Rizal Monument was completed in 1913, nearly 17 years after Rizal’s execution. -The Black Nazarene; Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno; Mahal na Itim na Nazareno; Our Father Jesus [the] Nazarene

The rest were either charred or were lost at sea. The memorial, which used to be just a round monolith, was renovated last 2008 under the auspices of former Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Belmonte.
