The Alberto Sampaio Museum has a 16th century painting depicting the outcome of the fight between the Archangel Michael and the Dragon, from whose belly, according to legend, Saint Margaret emerged unharmed. A fight between two rivals, which the illustrator Marc Parchow has transformed into a beautiful friendship, where neither can exist without the other.
The result can be seen in the full range of products designed for the Alberto Sampaio Museum.
