About The Artwork

The work refers to The Brazilian Xavante indigenous people, self-styled A'uwē ("people") or A'uwẽ Uptabi ("true people"), are an original people of Brazil, linguistically belonging to the Jê linguistic family, which, for in turn, belongs to the macro-jê linguistic trunk. The idea of ​​creating sculptures with wood that would go to waste arose from the need to express the concern with climatic conditions — how important it is to preserve nature, especially trees. “Treating wood as a product is an ignorant way of looking at nature because we depend on trees for everything. It's a lifetime.” The pieces have disconnected shapes and refer to man's disconnection from nature, which is not seen as part of the environment. The colors of the works yellow, orange, red and black allude to fires, one of the problems we are experiencing, especially in the North and Midwest. Green represents the strength and permanence of living vegetation. The names of the sculptures are references to the indigenous peoples of Brazil, who are the great guardians of the forests.
