Zé Pouvinho and its creator Bordalo Pinheiro have from now on a monument in their hometown of Caldas de Rainha. At the J.L. Ponce Artistic Platform we have undertaken the task of bringing them to life in a bronze sculptural set that is already on the public space. The bench has also been made in brass and bronze with a patina that imitates wood, inviting passersby to sit down for a moment and share a few minutes or a photo with such illustrious figures of the city.
The set was created by three artists in collaboration; Antonio Antunes, José D’Almeida and Carlos Constantino, achieving a high-quality figurative ensemble with cartoonish overtones that is very entertaining and fresh to look at. It was completed with a classic chocolate brown patina that gives the group a pleasant elegance.
