Photographer's Note

Here we have a general view of Alto de Los Ídolos archaelogical park. How I told you before, these tombs and sculptures were underground and were put out of the ground level in these last decades. These carved stones are protected under roofs how you can see here. In the central part of the compo we can see the largest sculpture and you have an idea where the other tombs are seeing the roofs. This ancient people liked to build their cemeteries in higher areas.
While walking in this place I feel like in my homeland, even the plants, stones, soil and the weather was some similar we have in northern-Paraná.

Temos aqui uma vista geral do Parque Arqueológico de Alto de Los Ídolos. Como já mencionei anteriormente, estas esculturas e tumbas estavam abaixo do nível do solo e foram colocadas acima dele nas últimas décadas. Atualmente estas pedras esculpidas estão protegidas debaixo destes telhados, como podemos ver na foto. Na parte central da composição temos a maior pedra esculpida, ao redor podemos ver onde estão os telhados e as tumbas que eles protegem. Este antigo povo gostava de erguer seus cemitérios no alto das colinas. Enquanto caminhava por esta área fiquei impressionado como as plantas, a terra, as rochas e o clima que eram muito semelhantes aos do meu norte do Paraná natal.
