The Angel of Columbus MEMORY

‘The Angel of Columbus’ is inspired in the non-western ornamental motifs that emerged in Europe during the Portuguese colonial period.

The hand drawings at the front of the piece illustrate a golden angel that protected the navigators – The Angel of Columbus.

Still today there is no consensus when it comes to the original nationality (birthplace) of Christopher Columbus. The navigator’s tomb is at Sevilla Cathedral.

During his first voyage in 1492, he reached the New World instead of arriving in Japan as he had intended, landing on an island in the Bahamas archipelago that he named San Salvador. Japan was the big dream of Christopher Columbus and his original motivation.

‘The Angel of Columbus’ pays an homage to this incredible man and his inspirational journey that impacted the world.
