Standing before the Insular Life Cebu Business Center stands a 40-foot sculpture created by Eduardo Castillo. “The Golden Tribute to the History of Cebu” was unveiled on the company’s 102nd anniversary, paying tribute to Cebu, as Insular Life CEO Vicente R. Ayllon said, “This will serve as an inescapable reminder to the Cebuanos about their cultural heritage.”

Crafted in a combination of brass and aluminum, the images of Lapu-Lapu, Ferdinand Magellan, Rajah Humabon and wife Hara Amihan, and the Sto. Niño are shown standing together in the center.

Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama was also in attendance at the 2012 unveiling.

Insular Life, founded on November 25, 1910, is known as the first life insurance company in the Philippines.
