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
- The authenticity and uniqueness of each of these handmade statuettes signed by their author.
- One-off piece
- Height : 15.7"
- Weight : 3 kg
The Côta family is the most charismatic and representative of the figurative art of Barcelos and the Minho region in 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 honoured as Revelation of the Year, at the Feira de Barcelos in 2018, the Pottery Museum has just included her in an exhibition "Geração Côta" and presents several of her works belonging to the Museum's collection and to private collections.
