"Beautiful example of a unique art form"

This is an exceptional example of an art form that could be threatened by contemporary forms of communications: woodcut illustrations of stories from Brazil?s Northeast, hung from strings and sold in markets. This master artist has created a wonderful evocative and humorous scene with deep cultural resonance.
