Sculptor and painter Graciano Nepomuceno from the Philippines was a leading sculptor and santero (icon maker) during the early 1900s. His famous works included the figure of San Francisco in Quiapo Church and the bust of Jose Rizal done in bronze relief. Besides this he produced realistic polychrome figures of peasant types, such as a woman holding a clay pot and a grey-haired man proudly holding a rooster. Animal subjects also fascinated Nepomuceno. One of his best known sculptures portrayed a man grappling and subduing a crocodile.
