A wainscot of archetypal pombaline tiles (azulejos pombalinos), used in an interior. The simple flower shapes could be done over and over in different colors so that in the spirit of the Age of Reason variety in mass production could be offered. Which came in handy after half the city fell down with the earthquake in 1755.
