GNT prouduces a memorial statue to Carmen Miranda

Carmen Miranda is the spotlight in the center of Marco de Canaveses town, with a 2 meter statue done by our associate GNT – Granitos do Norte, Lda.

This masterpiece, which took about 3 months to be done, has details which do justice to the image of Carmen Miranda, such as the jewelry used and the famous fruits on the top of the head.

According to our associate Agostinho Couto: "It was not easy to give substance to the image, but the biggest challenge were the sandals, because at the beginning it seemed like they were buried, and that was not the purpose”.
