The Strength - The Statue of the Marquis (Marquess) of Pombal photographed by Jorge Correia Santos


Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, the Marquess (or Marquis) of Pombal, was a reamarkable man. His strong atitude and actions in the aftermath of the earthquake of 1755 in Lisbon made him a real symbol of Strengh.

The Marquess of Pombal was a leader in the reconstruction of the city.

Among other deeds, he was also responsable for weekening the Inquisition (and you can see more about him in wikipedia).

So we see here the photograph of his statue taken by Jorge Correia Santos in the card number 8, the Strengh, in the Never Ending Tarot.

In the image above we see other details of this very interesting statue that also show strength, courage, determination, justice...
