This statuette is the representation of a crib that combines primary and shimmering colors. It is the most authentic expression of Prazeres Côta's personal universe, who shapes the clay by representing what she sees around her.
Why I love it
- An unclassifiable statuette halfway between craftsmanship and naive art.
- A naive and funny evocation of the traditions and mythologies of rural Minho always imbued with sensitivity and respect.
- The authentic and unique character of each of these handmade statuettes signed by their creator.

The Côta family is the most charismatic and representative family of the figurative art of Barcelos and the Minho region in northern Portugal.
Prazeres, one of Julia Côta's daughters, now continues the tradition initiated by her great grandfather, João Domingos Côta da Rocha, creator of the famous Portuguese Rooster (Galo de Barcelos).
Already honored as the Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Feira de Barcelos in 2018, the Pottery Museum has just included her in a"Geração Côta" exhibition and presents several of her works that belong to the Museum's collection and to private collections as well.
