A GIGANTIC photo mosaic featuring a larger-than-life image of the late President Corazon Aquino was unfurled at the Luneta grounds yesterday, one of the many tributes commemorating the first anniversary of her death a year ago today.

Her son, President Aquino led family, friends and supporters in the unveiling of the mosaic—mounted on a tarpaulin weighing four tons and measuring 60 by 76.2 meters—containing 3,200 color and black-and-white photographs of his mother. Most of the photos were taken during her presidency by amateur and professional photographers.

Mr. Aquino said the mosaic symbolized the hope that sprung among Filipinos, beyond the expressions of sympathy for the loss of his mother. Viewed from above, the mosaic of photos formed a giant close-up of Cory’s face. The main image that was used was contributed by Tess Puzon-Rivera, a breast cancer survivor who said she was a big fan of the late President.

The mosaic is the handiwork of photojournalist and mosaic artist Revoli Cortez who covered the Cory presidency. Cortez is hoping that the mosaic will make it to the Guinness Book of World Records.
