João das Alagoas

João Carlos da Silva, João das Alagoas, was born in Capela, zona da mata, Alagoas. He is a master of ceramics responsible for re-creating the bumba-meu-boi ox, so common in popular Brazilian figurative art.

With his hands, João creates from the clay big oxes with their mantles carved in low and high relief, representing stories of the northeastern folklore, the street plays, the marriages, the baptized, in short, the stories of the people and their traditions.
