Details

Drumbeats mark the rhythm for flautists while brass cymbals add emphasis. Gathered around them, people enjoy the sounds of a rural fife band. Girls in green and pink print dresses look on in admiration. Such musical groups figure importantly in the folklore of Northeastern Brazil. Working in the woodcut technique, J. Borges creates a colorful naif image.

Xylograph (woodcut) print on paper, titled "Banda de Pifano Rural I" 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.
