The swallow (Andorinha) is one of the most famous Portuguese symbols. Made of ceramic, black or painted in various colors, the swallow is today an icon of national folklore and a decorative element present in many homes.
In the Gazete Azulejos studio, the wall presenting all the azulejos is also decorated with small Andorinhas.
Through my mosaic, I give kind of an abstract view of the interior of the workshop, where the tiles are a mixture of broken azulejos together with specially painted ones, then arranged in Trencadis in a random geometric way.
