In one pavilion on the ground of the Portugal-dos-Pequenitos, I found this Azulejos painting, I think it's depicted a ceremony undergoing on the façade of the Sé Velha de Coimbra, the ancient Cathedral in the old town.
In the WS is the area out on that place where taken the painted tile's pic.

Hello dear Ike
Beautiful pictures from the pavilion to see in your shop.
Fine presentation of Portugal and its history.
Your work is absolutely fantastic and I personally like it a lot.
Beautiful scenes from the picture, beautiful colors, maybe even better than those from your blue photo series.

A true work of art this beautiful tile and you've captured magnificently in a frame with great symmetry.

Good start to week. Best regards.

It is a view of Isabel, the Saint-queen of Portugal. She was from spain and got married with Dinis king of portugal and she was ever leting donatives to the poor people and his husband didn't like that because he had political doubts about loyalty of spanish citizens in portugal.
Once , tells the history, she saw some beggars in front her palace and went there to make carity when the king arrived and asked her: what are you taking inside this clothes ? and she replied: only roses , my sir !
and then the king said: there are roses in january ? let me see them ! and then, when she opened her arms there were only roses. This is a famous miracle about this queen.
I liked the composition, these details are perfect and I liked the framing

What a beautiful scene, someone certainly had some talent to put this together. Although a bit of center, I really like how you framed this using the design at the top of the arch, as if it's hanging by that support. The faint edges of the tiles give this an almost mosaic type of look and adds some subtle texturing throughout. Very well exposed so as to keep everything in detail and the contrast in tact, which I think is what aids in the depth of the painting. Great detail and clarity, thanks for sharing. Have a great day.
