The Spider and the Skull
The Spider and the Skull is a portrayal of the great struggle between good and evil, between the oppression of the helpless and the preservation of the week. It is a quest for survival against insurmountable odds, where the unlikeliest of heroes emerge victorious over the weight of tyranny. The story depicts a vivid illustration about the triumph of the human spirit, a testament of love, a measure of man's grit, and a test of one's faith. It is a glimpse at a time where innocence is lost. And at the end, it is the vindication of one's perseverance. This is a story of God's ultimate provision and His supernatural intervention that prevailed amidst great tragedies. When hope was bleak, His spiritual manifestations were made evident through the eyes of a young girl. This is the legacy of Lucio Tio, a legacy of God's ultimate plan and a testament to His unfailing love.
