A tribute to Fernando Pessoa. Design by Catarina Pestana and Shape by Carvalho Araújo. Fernando Pessoa was born in a permanent search of himself. On his body he wore his characters in different contexts that expressed disparate ways of living and looking at the world, that endure and live today in our soul. Three major heteronyms are shown here: Alberto Caeiro - 'to be', the Master. Lives peacefully in nature, knowing that he will die to return to her. Ricardo Reis - 'to live', the Doctor. Lives in the rationality and understanding of the little time he has until he dies. Álvaro de Campos - 'to feel', the Futurist. Lives in a frantic and revolutionary manner, anxiously towards catharsis.
- Dimensions: 3 1/7" W x 3 1/7" L x 3 1/7" H
- About Vista Alegre:
Founded in 1824, the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory was the first industrial unit dedicated to producing porcelain in Portugal. Over its long history, the Vista Alegre brand, which has always been intimately associated with Portuguese history and culture, has achieved unparalleled recognition and visibility.
Public recognition, perceived quality and the company’s investment in innovation and design have turned Vista Alegre into one of the very few Portuguese luxury brands to achieve iconic status on a worldwide level.
Having adopted rigorousness, sophistication and versatility as its core values, Vista Alegre has been able to harmoniously combine tradition and modernity, and remain attuned to cultural trends. Vista Alegre products reflect the most recent design trends and are manufactured according to the highest quality and functionality standards. In addition to using state-of-the-art production techniques, the porcelain factory also employs 17 hand painters, who are responsible for decorating the pieces produced.
