Sermão aos Peixes

The idea of the work was to change the religious content of the original piece, making it a little more "abstract" - something like a wave sculpture that references a sea landscape, quite characteristic of Brazil and Portugal; to bring out a unique piece of the collection, or little known by the public who knows the Bordallo production, besides tracing a relationship with the works of my personal artistic production.
