His first commissioned work was the Carcar landmark, "Rotunda" based on the sketches of his brother, Martino Abellana. Together with his brother, Manuel, he sculpted the figures. He also carved two life-sized statues: Lapu-lapu and Sergio Osmeña Sr., both can be seen at the grounds of Cebu City Capitol.
