About Popular Clay Figures

The traditional figures and settings found in the rural world of yore, which persisted until the mid-20th century, are reflected in a wealth of shapes. Its memory is preserved in the many figurines produced and the many others that continue to be created. Recognisable figures are interspersed with fanciful, imaginary creatures, which reflect some of the most marked traits of popular culture: the grotesque, scatological elements, primal threats and fears, as well as the laughter that exorcises them. The holy is scaled down to human size through imperfections and distortions. Figures appear transported by music into a world of bliss, rapture, laughter and endless fun.
