:: SL-WEEK 47: Blue


Following the tradition of blue Portuguese glazed tiles, Cândido Portinari painted a large mural for the façade on the back of the altar of Saint Francis of Assisi in Pampulha. Here is part of it showing the fish by the saint’s feet. Some other photos of the mural and the church are seen under the tag ‘Portinari’ and in this post (and the following days).
Every week Sylvain Landry proposes a theme for a photo and this time the subject is ‘Blue’. Visit his blog to see other interpretations.
