FILIPINO artist who created the "Female Oblation" sculpture denied on Sunday that his work was copied from a Dutch artist. The "Uplift" sculpture (also called the Female Oblation) of artist Ferdinand Cacnio was displayed at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus. Cacnio said on his Facebook account on Friday, June 23, that the sculpture is his contribution to UP.

The brass sculpture displayed at the University of the Philippines (UP) campus in Quezon City caught the attention of some netizens as it seemed to be a "copycat" of an installation in The Netherlands called as "The Virgins of Apeeldoorn."

To end speculations, Ferdinand Cacnio, a visual artist who created the piece in UP, responded to questions regarding his work.

In a comment, Cacnio said, "I did it first in 2007. I didn't copy. It's a product of my own imagination."
"It's just coincidental since I want to do something that has an illusion of levitating... Parang nakalutang. Nakaangat na buhok lang ang nakasayad," he added.

"Honestly ngayon ko lang nakita ang work ng artist na nire-refer mo na kinopyahan ko. Hindi sila parehas ng concept. Medyo same pose lang," Cacnio further explained.

The post has garnered more than 500 likes, over 300 shares and more than 60 comments as of posting time.

Cacnio used brass while the Stienstra used bronze. The woman in Stienstra’s sculpture is clothed while Cacnio's is not.

Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own. However, with Cacnio's artwork it is repeatedly said that it is a product of own imagination. Whatever it is we must respect and be proud with their masterpiece.
