“Pat a cake, pat a cake, baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can”
A quick post here to recommend something different!
Portugal em Açúcar is an exhibition being held at the Continente shopping centre at Portimão (the one with the cinema) until the end of May. A friend suggested that we should see it – and they were right!
The exhibition is a small series of landmarks of Portugal – made out of sugar and bread! The detail is quite incredible and they are all beautifully presented in large glass cases with information cards.
They are all made by students in Lisbon and many have taken at least 150 hours each to make; and each represents a famous landmark or piece of Portuguese history.
I won’t spoil it all by posting all the pictures – just a selection to get your mouth watering (!)
But if you get the chance and you are nearby, do go along and have a look – it’s free – and well worth a quick detour!
If you are visiting Portimão – you may also enjoy this post Afternoon at the Museum
Wow, what masterpieces! You can´t put a price on such work – so many hours of love, patience and art went into each piece to make them look like the original landmarks.
yes they are quite amazing aren’t they?
Absolutely gorgeous! It’s so amazing what some people can do with just bread and sugar. Too bad that Portimão is such a long drive from here or I’d be bugging meu marido to take me to see this art in person!
at least my pics give you an idea?
thanks for visiting and posting on the blog 🙂 bom fim semana!
What wonderful craftmanship. Your photos are wonderful. Would not guess the displays were made of sugar if you hadn’t told us. Thanks for sharing.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
thanks! glad you like them
have a lovely weekend
Love the Torre de Belem and Discobremento. Might have found time for this if I’d known Aly.
yes we only found out through someone else … often the way out here! It’s nice to be able to blog about things so that more people can enjoy them!
