Artist shares P2,000 bill featuring late senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago


- Advertisment -

Inspired by the answer of the newly crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo, a netizen shared on social media his layout of a P2,000 featuring the late senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago. 

The designer, Mikel Sarte, said he uses the red color that portrays the power and illustrates a phenomenal woman like the senator. 

Meanwhile, the Jaro Cathedral is also present in the paper bill. According to him, it symbolizes the love and devotion of Ilonggos. 

The bill also features a hablon which is considered as an indigenous fabric, the Rafflesia speciosa, and Santiago’s medal of honor. 

Rabiya, during the question and answer portion on Sunday, said if given a chance to choose the face of a new paper currency, she’d pick up the late senator.
