My son João Carlos Carvalho took the photos! He is not happy
with them because of the reflection made by the acrilic covers!

Algumas fotos de uma exposição de conchas que está no
Museu de Alvaiázere até 1º de Novembro de 2009.
O meu filho João Carlos Carvalho, tirou as fotos. Ele não ficou
satisfeito com elas , por causa do reflexo provocado pelos
acrílicos das coberturas.

This time I have chosen to organize my exhibition in a
different way. I have grouped shells into the different
countries they come from. The museum named it
properly "Shells of the world".  Here I register my
thanks to the mayor of Alvaiázere, Paulo Morgado, for
this opportunity to show part of my collection. I would
also like to thank the Museum Director Paula Cassiano
and all their staff for their very professional assistance.
There are  927 shells from 22 countries. I tried to
choose  quality shells representing  these countries, in
order  the visitors  to have  a better understanding  
about sea mollusks of all the world. The exhibition is
going to stay open to the public until the 1st November
2009.


Desta vez, organizei a mostra  por países. O museu
deu-lhe apropriadamente o nome de "Conchas do
Mundo".
Fica aqui registado o meu sincero agradecimento ao
Presidente da Câmara de Alvaiázere, Paulo Morgado,
pela oportunidade de mostrar as conchas, bem como
a ajuda muito prfissional da directora Paula Cassiano e
outro pessoal do Museu.
Estão expostas 927 conchas oriúndas de 22 países.
Tentei escolher conchas de qualidade e
representativas desses países de modo a que as
pessoas possam ficar com uma ideia geral,  sobre os  
moluscos marinhos de todo o mundo.
A mostra irá estar patente ao público até 1 de
Novembro de 2009
