This beautiful mural painting representing a Heart of Viana (Coração de Viana) is made of folded tiny strips of paper by Cândida Conde Miranda. This small painting is a concentrate of artisanal techniques, modernity, and Portuguese culture. This technique is called quilling art.

Why I love it 
  • Cândida's extraordinary mastery of this technique of quilling art offers extremely detailed and meticulous objects.
  • The artistic and modern reinterpretation of the icons of Portuguese culture.

                                                                                                     

Please note: This painting is a unique piece handmade by Cândida Conde Miranda. The painting you will receive is as close as possible to the copy presented here, but some small details may differ.
The heart of Viana is one of the most important symbols of Portugal. Please read our blog on the Coração de Viana to learn more about it.
