Huh, you'd think if they're in Texas, they'd be in Tennessee too.

OK, where is this statue and who is it of?

I was searching in the right ocean but wouldn't have gotten it without your clue! Chief Lapulapu, the man who chopped Magellan to bits, ending his quest to circumnavigate the world.

P.S. A few years ago when I taught my class about Magellan, when I told them that he died in 1521, one of my students actually asked if he is still dead. He was serious too!

Wow, as if Magellan came back alive?

Yes you're correct! It's of Chief Lapu lapu who is kind of a legendary hero in the Philippines. The statue is on Mactan Island.
