The mystique and the artistry of the Xavantes tribe inspire this colorful work by Genny Marcondes. The Xavantes are renowned for their fine aesthetic principles, which dictate that women should bear no hair on their body and face, only head. The Xavantes people use natural pigments to color their ornamentations, which Marcondes seeks to emulate by mixing tempera paints and sand. The result is a hypnotic composition replete with tribal elegance.
Titled "Xavantes II" in Portuguese.
