As of mother's day celebration and as a tribute to the legendary mom of Tarlac, a 22-by-40-foot mosaic portrait of Cory Aquino, printed on a tarpaulin, was unveiled at the atrium of SM City Tarlac.

The mosaic is composed of 6,000 photographs of mothers, which were gathered from shoppers through the mall’s "Kabahagi Ako" campaign. It was designed by students of Tarlac State University’s College of Fine Arts and will be on display for a month.

Present in the event were the daughter, Viel Aquino-Dee, and grandson, Josh who both represent family Aquino.

According to Darrel Ramos, SM City Tarlac assistant mall manager, the mosaic was made to give tribute to the mother of Philippine democracy, and to all mothers who undyingly love and care their families.

A replica of the mosaic from SM City regional operations manager, Cesar Bondoc will be turned over to the Aquino Museum inside Hacienda Luisita, which is owned by the Cojuanco family.

Meanwhile, as also part of the tribute and mother’s day celebration, dancers from Little Steps Ballet School honored Cory Aquino with a performance to the tune of Jose Mari Chan's 'I Have Fallen in Love with the Same Woman Three Times."

Another performer, who is Lourdes Joy Baysa, gave her heartfelt rendition of the songs Mama, "Sa Ugoy ng Duyan" and "You Raise Me Up" that made the audience shed tears. [via newsinfo.inquirer.net]
