Parazeres Côta's works, like those of her mother, Júlia, evoke the rural life of Minho, its traditional characters and the influences of religious or mythological beliefs.
The Boneca Barriguda (potbelly doll) is a naive representation of Minho women that can still be found in the markets or at local festivals. She is presented here in her best attire, wearing her most beautiful and colorful dress.
Why I love it
- An unclassifiable work between craft and naive art.
A burlesque and ironic evocation of the inhabitants of Minho, yet full of sensitivity and respect.
The authenticity and uniqueness of each of these handmade statuettes signed by their author.
