Prazeres 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 (pot-bellied doll) is a naive representation of Minho women, still to be found at markets and local festivals. She is presented here in her finest finery, dressed in her most beautiful, brightly-colored dress and carrying a basket of fruit.
Why I love it
- An unclassifiable work, between handicraft and naive art.
- A burlesque and ironic evocation of the people of Minho
- The authenticity and uniqueness of each of these handmade statuettes, signed by their creator.

More informations ?
The Côta family is the most charismatic and representative of figurative art in Barcelos and the Minho region of northern Portugal.
Prazeres, one of Julia Côta's daughters, 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 revelation of the year, at Feira de Barcelos in 2018, the Pottery Museum has just included her in an exhibition "Geração Côta" and is presenting several of her works belonging to the Museum's collection and private collections.
