Bishop's House in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Philippines

Beside the San Sebastian Cathedral and across the Plaza del Seis de Noviembre in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, Philippines is the Bishop's House which was the former rectory of the San Sebastian Cathedral. It was built between 1891 and 1894 with materials from Palawan and Guimaras.

The Living Room

The living room of the Bishop's House is in the second floor of the building right at the landing at the flight of stairs leading to the second floor. It is adorned with many antique furniture pieces and one can really feel the vintage vibe.

Art at the Bishop's Palace

There are some usual religious statues and paintings at the Bishop's House in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental. Yet there were a few pieces of art that caught my attention during my visit. One was a Marian grotto right under a staircase leading to the second floor.

While many of us are used to see an image of Jesus Christ nailed to a cross, a sculpture at the Bishop's Palace depicts Jesus Christ with several wounds in his chest, arms, and thighs and his left hand tied to a tree.

The third art piece that drew my attention was two hands lifting up an aborted baby before a column that bears a cross.
