Invitation Figure

The Baroque (c. 1600-1750 CE) and Rococo (c. 1700-1800) movements led to a style of azulejos (glazed ceramic tile) that is unique to Portugal – figuras de convite or invitation figures. These were ornate life-size figures, usually a finely dressed nobleman or woman and they were fixed to the walls of stairways and at entrances to palaces to welcome or invite guests inside. Photo taken in 2012 CE.
