As meninas da Vanda Palma – Castro Verde

Vanda Palma’s Girls – Castro Verde

Cavalo de António José Lagarto – Viana do Alentejo

Horse from António José Lagarto – Viana do Alentejo

As meninas da Vanda vestem luvas e flores à cabeça, vivem em mundos de azul eterno com os seus gatos ou os seus jardins. Os Cavalos do Sr Lagarto são caramelizados com o verde que invade o cobre em Viana do Alentejo. A minúscula Chica faz as honras da casa assim como a sua mãe envolta a negro.

Vanda’s Girls wear gloves and flowers on their hairs, live on worlds of permanent blue sky with their cats and gardens. The horses from Mr Lagarto are caramelized with the green that conquers the copper at Viana do Alentejo village. The tiny Chica and his black wearing mother received us on his atelier.

Amor Cego – Blind Love

Primavera – Spring

Nossa Senhora do O – Our Lady of O

As Irmãs Flores reproduzem as tradicionais figuras do espólio artesanal de Estremoz (que pode ser admirado no Museu Municipal Prof. Joaquim Vermelho) embora também inovem na criação de outros personagens usualmente ligados à História ou ao saber popular.

Do atelier das irmãs trouxe uma” Primavera” e um “Amor Cego” que se vieram juntar à “Nossa Senhora do Ó” que havia adquirido numa outra viagem a Estremoz.

The Flores Sisters produce replicas of the traditional figures of the Estremoz artisan estate (that can be admired at the Prof. Joaquim Vermelho Museum) they also innovate creating characters of the Portuguese History or of a popular basis.

From their atelier I brought a “Primavera” (spring) and an “Amor Cego” (blind love) that have joined the “Nossa Senhora do Ó” (Our Lady of O) from my last trip to Estremoz.
