Photographer's Note

After visit São Paulo Church I climbed the mountain and visited the main fort of the town, up there I visited a modern museum filled with many antiquities and many elements and mockups telling the history of Macau, its peculiar culture, a mix of Portuguese and Chinese heritage. You can know about the Macau's cooking, as was the marriage, architecture, etc..
Here we can see details of a folding screen of the 16th century showing a group of the Portuguese hunting in China. Pay attention in their clothes, faces and the loooong guns. Japanese folding screens showing portuguese were famous and you can find some samples in Lisbon museums, but I never had seen one from China.

Depois de visitar a Igreja de São Paulo, subi a montanha e fui conhecer o maior forte de Macau. Lá em cima há um museu moderno que conta a história e a cultura peculiar da cidade, sua mistura de elementos portugueses e chineses, com inúmeras antiguidades e maquetes mostrando coisas do seu cotidiano, sua cultura e aspectos como culinária, casamento, religião, arquitetura, etc.
Vemos aqui detalhes de um biombo do século 16 que mostra portugueses caçando na China. Reparem nas roupas, nos rostos e nas longas espingardas. Biombos japoneses dessa época mostrando portugueses são bem famosos e vistos em museus de Lisboa, mas eu nunca havia visto um da China.
