Dolphy statue unveiled in Manila

A monument for the late Comedy King Dolphy was unveiled on Monday in front of Museo Pambata in Manila.

Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim led the unveiling ceremony, together with Dolphy's children Eric, Epi, Vandolph, and Nicole Quizon, and other relatives.

The statue was crafted by Jonas Roces, who was also the guy who made Fernando Poe Jr.'s statue recently unveiled in front of the US Embassy in Manila, as well as national hero Jose Rizal's statue in Laguna.

Manila Historical and Heritage Commission deputy chair Gemma Cruz-Araneta said it was only right to place Dolphy's statue in front of Museo Pambata, a beneficiary of the late comedian's RVQ Foundation.

Dolphy died July 10 last year after battling with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
