oa South African Journal of Cultural History - Avelino Belo (1872-1927), Portugese keramiekkunstenaar en bewonderaar van die Boere
During the Anglo-Boer War some 1 100 Boers crossed the Mozambican border and were interned and transferred to Portugal by the Portuguese. It was in Caldas da Rainha that a particular friendship developed between the internees and a gifted young ceramic artist, Belo. This inspired him to create an exceptional commemorative jug and terra-cotta medals in their honour.
