Contemplating the face of Jesus as a child in Art

There is this exhibit on the Santo Niño with the theme: “Contemplating the face of Jesus as a child in art”, at the 3rd floor Art Center near VECO SM City Cebu. It is free and you only have to sign in the registration area. Displayed there were the many different statues (Small and Big), some paintings of the Santo Niño coming from different areas and titles.
