From the Oblation Plaza article.

The Oblation is a concrete statue by Filipino artist Guillermo E. Tolentino. Depicting a man facing upward with arms outstretched, symbolizing selfless offering of oneself to his country, it serves as the iconic symbol of the University of the Philippines.

The original sculpture is now at the UP Main Library.
