Art, Music and Words around The Coffee Table

Sculptura Portuguesa – 4 –

Mainly a religious theme today, chiefly becuase of the extraordinary town of Fatima, which claims to have been the site of a “miracle” sighting. Whether you have blind faith or not, there’s no denying the power of the place and the wonderful statues and architecture that adorn it.
