It’s a tribute to the famous myth of the Barcelos rooster that saved a Galician and became part of the folklore and symbolic culture of Portugal. For the artist, since her childhood these colors and this myth in particular intensely refer to the Lusitanian aesthetics.
The Rooster of Barcelos is a great Portuguese popular figure that has been immortalized in wood, crockery or ceramics. It is the most famous Portuguese “souvenir”! Barcelo is contemporary, proud and will enchant your other half, portrayed in vigorous lines, elements and colors.
Azulejinha is a Sardine which values the beauty of Portuguese tile graphics and painting techniques. Its ornamental decoration has a glazed face making it waterproof and shiny. Portugal learnt the method of manufacture and painting like no one else, and the Portuguese tile became one of the strongest expressions of its culture. From ceramic piece to ceramic piece, here is an always Portuguese tribute.
