The Côta family is the most charismatic and representative family of the figurative art of Barcelos and the Minho region in northern Portugal.
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.
Why I love it
- This wonderful clay statuette is, for me, totally unclassifiable and is between craftsmanship and naive art.
- A funny and ironic evocation of the inhabitants of Minho, yet full of sensitivity and respect.
- The authentic and unique character of each of these handmade statuettes signed by their creator.
Please note: This piece is unique, entirely moulded in clay and then hand-painted.
- Height: about 15 cm
- Weight: approx. 700 g
