The Heartwarming Story Behind That Darna Mural
In artist AG Saño's world, Darna is a real-life superhero. In May, he painted a Darna mural on the side of a condo in Maginhawa, Quezon City, but instead of the usual slinky two-piece, the building-sized version of Mars Ravelo's iconic heroine donned scrubs, a stethoscope, and a mask.
According to Saño, his work paid tribute to healthcare frontliners who are tirelessly battling the COVID-19 threat. The mural caught the eye of former Darna actress Angel Locsin who wrote on her Instagram: "To our brave frontliners, Kayo po ang real-life superheroes and thanking you for your selfless service isn’t just enough."
