I found this spectacular seat in an old colonial building in a provincial city, far away from the more cosmopolitan cities of the world. I can only imagine that it was built by italian artisans since they arrived as migrants very early in the history of Argentina.The building where the seat is located is now a local chamber of commerce and has many other Architectural details that make it so very special.

Wow, you;re so lucky I wasn't with you, I would have tried to take it home, such is my love of ceramics. The image is beautiful, beautifully saturated and well-exposed. Your note is fascinating too. I always knew that Argentina had many Italian immigrants, but it is always wonderful to see how they have contributed.
PS: I joined Rebubble a while ago, but don't have much time to devote to it. I'll check out your Gallery there soon ;)

Wonderful presentation. TFS.

Brought from Portugal maybe... Nice taken this view of "Azulejos", typical tiles-art from a moorish-culture.
Fine light management indoores to creat wonderful contrst, also with good sharpness.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

I'm glad you find and learned a new technique to give more sharp to your image, do not know if you've applied in your last, but I think it right in because the details are clear and friezes can be seen in all their beautiful, beautiful work of art are pleased that the artist was Italian, very attractive also shades of blue...nice work...
my best regards,

Hi Gus - not a very comfortable looking seat - hard and cold but an interesting photo with good realistic colour.

I have these tiles in a Spanish town, seen in Sitges. The fences of the houses were decorated with tiles. Your photo is fascinating
