Human statues in Tomar of famous and beautiful women of the past

This is a sequel of the Festival of Human Statues that took place in the summer of 2010 in Tomar. This time I am focusing on human statues of famous, beautiful and traditional women of the past. The first photo portrayed by a street artist, represents a traditional washerwoman from past centuries who used to do their laundry at Nabão River. The second photo is of the “statue” of Inês Pereira who is a fictional character of the play Farsa de Inês de Pereira (Farce of Inês Pereira), written by the Portuguese playwright Gil vicente and first shown in 1523 at the Convent of Christ in Tomar. One of the spectators was the Portuguese King D. João III. The third photo portrays the statue of Angela Tamagnini, an illustrious portuguese lady of italian descent who lived in the 18th century in the City of Tomar.
