Campino Sobreposto

The Campino Sobreposto piece is part of a series of works that use the composition by overlapping two similar images. The aim is to question the levels of representation of the shapes. As if by overlapping two images we get a more realistic picture rather than one single image. Another goal is to build forms with more complexity and difficulty; in the case of the Campino, creating it demanded great skill by the artists of Bordallo Pinheiro, mainly in putting the moulds and pieces together.
