The Dutch (Delft)-inspired single-figure tile, emerged at the end of the 17th century when the pattern tiles are out of fashion, introducing themes and designs more adjusted to the Portuguese way of interpreting life, giving them a markedly national style.
Its painting comes in a huge number of themes: flowers, animals (birds, ducks, fish, deer, gazelles, rabbits, dogs, cats), boats, houses, towers, baskets with flowers or fruits and also human figures.
The main characteristic of these tiles lies essentially in the dispersed ornamental pattern in the center, which either may be the only decorative ornament of the tile or can be completed by other secondary ornaments in the corners, connected together or isolated.
Each item of Terra Lusa collections is a reference and a real tribute to Portugal’s cultural and emotional heritage. History, Culture, Art and Heritage, beat timelessly, discovering one again the memories of a country that, without wasting time, sails towards the future.
