A Statue in San Agustin: One of the Saints or Is It an Angel or Both?

St Michael the Archangel defeating the devil. Well, I think is of course minus the spear and devoid of wings. Probably kept somewhere safe. San Agustin Church and Museum lost a 300 year old Santo Nino (Child Jesus) statue last year. One of the places in Manila one should visit. It is one of the few surviving structure within Intramuros that was not destroyed during the liberation of Manila. Like any old place San Agustin is a place of interest, Surrender terms were signed here, as well as the grisly deaths of a few Agustinians - the murder of the head of the order worthy of an Umberto Eco tale or the death of a brother due to snag with his scapular.
