Pulpits of Goa

MoCA and GHAG conducted 4th Heritage Hour on 10th July 2021 at 16:00 IST on the ‘Pulpits of Goa’ by Ms. Hilda Frias.

In the early years of the Portuguese presence in Goa, the desire to build and beautify the city of Goa (Old Goa) was felt in both civil and religious spheres. With the arrival of the religious orders, the city's artistic development was intensified.

This presentation aims to discuss the meeting of cultures that characterizes the originality of the Indo-Portuguese art form, represented through Sculptures and Paintings in the churches and chapels of Goa which formed the base of her study of Pulpits in these spaces.
