This piece was inspired in that hisrical facts of D. Manuel I, the 14th king of Portugal. He had the nickname of “The Fortunate”, “The Blessed” or “The Lucky” by both the happy events that led to the throne and those that occurred during his reign. He proceeded with the maritime explorations, initiated by his predecessors, which led to the discovery of sea route to India by Vasco da Gama and the discovery of Brazil by Pedro Álvares Cabral, crucial to the expansion of the Portuguese overseas empire. He had three wives, the last of them being D. Eleanor (Leonor). In the year 1498, in one of his trips to Spain, D. Manuel I was impressed by the exuberance of Moorish interior. So he has the desire to edify his residence like the places he visited in Seville and Toledo; tile makes its first appearance in Portugal, in the National Palace of Sintra, the Monarch’s residence, who became one of the best examples of originality in the use of this material.
