Details

Twinkling stars surround the crescent moon in the blue night sky. Together in their tenuous light, a couple makes love in a desert landscape with cactus, stones and desert creatures. Birds pair off before seeking their nest for the night and a curious wolf watches the people with interest. Recalling the story of the original sin, J. Borges adds a red serpent that winds sinuously through their Eden on northeastern Brazil. The artist works in the woodcut technique.

Xylograph (woodcut) print on paper, titled "Luar do Sertão II" in Portuguese.

"Beautiful example of a unique art form"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
