Caption: Columbus statue. 19th-century artwork of a statue in the Philippines to the Italian explorer Christopher Columbus (1451-1506). Erected in the city of Cavite, the associations with the USA led to it being decapitated by the locals during the unrest associated with the Spanish-American War of 1898, which led to the Philippine Revolution and later the Philippine-American war. Artwork from the 23rd volume (first period of 1899) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
