Statue design of St. Nuno
Competition of Santa Casa da Misericórdia
rchitecture: Vasco Silva
Inresponse to public tender to design a statue of St. Nuno Santa Mariasponsored by the Santa Casa da Misericordia ofBarcelos, we opted for an iconic representation of his face, takingthe syntheticand symbolic elementof hisjourney throughlife. Thus, the sculpture embodiesgeometriclines that refer to his military route. This statue also invites thepublic to see the sky through itseyes and thoughts,in association with itsreligious devotion.

Em resposta ao concurso público para a concepção de uma estátua a São Nuno Santa Maria promovido pela Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Barcelos, optámos por uma representação icónica do rosto, tomando-o elemento sintético e simbólico do seu percurso de vida. Assim, a escultura materializa-se com linhas geométricas que remetem para o seu percurso Militar de São Nuno Santa Maria. Esta estátua convida ainda o público a ver o céu através do seu olhar e pensamento, numa associação à sua devoção religiosa.
