Photographer's Note

At side of the highway between Urubici and São Joaquim there is a wall of sandstone where we can find remainings of the ancient people who lived in that region, around 4 thousand years ago. It is told this face is a "gardian", not so far there are many drawings showing estilizated intimal parts of women, meaning the gate of the life. The face is more visible and its lines are very modern I guess.

Ao lado da rodovia entre Urubici e São Joaquim aparece um paredão de arenito onde se encontram estes relevos de cerca de 4 mil anos. Segundo dizem, esta face é de um "guardião" enquanto que ao lado desta figura aparecem vulvas estilizadas, simbolizando o portão da vida. Nesta foto mostro a figura mais bem visível, gosto muito dos traços quase modernos da figura.
