The unchained female figure, holding a book, represents the empowered Filipino woman. She is today’s contemporary woman – a mother, a nurturer, an educator, and a servant to humanity. She is also beauty personified.
The male figure with a pen and a torch represents the dignified Filipino father. He is being shown as strong, prominent, dignified and excellent in his field of endeavor besides being portrayed as a true searcher of truth. The flame of the torch carries the letters CvSU for Cavite State University – serving as the guiding light of his noble quest.
The interlocked arms of the man and the woman signifies unity of purpose and direction.
The child figure with a dove, in a dynamic pose standing on top of the pillar, represents the youth in general and recognized as the proverbial hope of the future that needs molding and nurturing. The dove being reached out by the child, symbolizes peace and freedom.
The central pillar symbolizes growth and development. It represents humanity’s common aspiration for an improved quality of life – a kind of development with equity and harmony. It is ever growing, ever aiming higher but always deeply rooted in history.
The entire artwork is mounted on a CvSU logo-shaped base to serve as a fitting reminder to the entire CvSU community of its great responsibility to remain faithful to the University’s vision and mission and to hold sacred its tenets of TRUTH, EXCELLENCE, and SERVICE.
Upon completion, murals will be installed on the sides of the base. These will depict the important historical events that took place in the province of Cavite and throughout the Philippines. The murals will portray events showing Filipino’s life and spirit under imperial Spain and other colonizers including Filipino’s continuing struggle for freedom and independence.
