SHOVEL – Object of the Month for March 2023

The Alentejo region is usually known for its high temperatures in summer, but also marked in winter by very cold temperatures compared to the center-south and south coast.
In this sense, in the last month of winter we exhibit an object associated with cold weather. A shovel used to collect ashes from the fireplace.
This shovel features a rectangular shape with flaps on the back and sides and a handle.
