It is not my intention to crush your neurons with a brand, Lladró, which has more detractors than defenders (at least on our page) but today I want you to give it a new opportunity because I have found a collection that does not make me think of oropeles, kettles and stale decoration. It's about the collection Africa beats in which the most famous porcelain brand (and face) gives its version of African art with designs by José Santaeulalia.
He characteristic white of Lladró it gives way to brown, brown, black and only intervenes in these figurines as an episodic color almost always in spirals or in certain details such as animal horns. These figures remind those who do come from Africa but are reinterpreted, fleeing from the conceptualism that Picasso liked so much, for example, in love with their angles and their stretched figures to show us round pieces.
Some pieces like the African Girl are directly a version of other figurines traditional but going through the nuance of the black race while the two animals seem to me a precious find. I already imagine being able to have at home an oryx or a zebu with its long horns and it is that I get excited.
As always, prices are not up to all pockets but if you have a whim and do not want a white and pink figurine, I think this may be a good alternative. Yes, the cheapest piece costs 175 euros And from there up. Do you see it in your house?
