Pessoa forever ...

View On Black

 

Fernando Pessoa is considered to be the most representative poet of the 20th century.

A quiet man on the outside he wrote under at least 4 different names and "personalities" ... here one can see the famous statue at his favourite Cafe in Lisbon, "A Brasileira" ...

the statue was made by artist Lagoa Henriques, who passed away a couple of weeks ago; this statue of the famous poet is a "must" for all who visit Lisbon and somehow they will forever sit next to the great Pessoa.

My personal homage to my favourite poet as well as to the artist who somehow makes him even more imortal.

 

“Whoever, when he dies, leaves on paper a beautiful line of poetry has left the heavens richer and the earth too.” F. Pessoa
