Each tile represents a single composition (flower, animal, etc., or even a description of more complex scenes). In Portugal, during the XVIIIth century, the plain blue figure kind with decorative elements in the corners to help the visual unity between the various tiles became more popular. Placed especially in kitchens and staircases they are also applied in the religious architecture. The tile is one of the strongest expressions of Portuguese culture.
