Surrealism in Lisboa (Lisbonne 4)

As we arrived in Lisbon for Amadora BD, both Stanley Wany and I went in search of Portuguese surrealist artists. Spain gave us Picasso, Dali and Bunuel. Both Spain and Portugal were bathed in baroque Catholic imagery wich often leads to creating surrealism shrines (like the Mexicans have done in some of their churches).

As we walked up and down the streets of Lisbon, we saw and entered little shops full of Virgins (Mary).  We went into a surrealist tiles store called Surrealejos. In a small corner street, we entered an old antique shop filled with a surrealist treasure trove of statues and exotic curiosities.
