Brazilian Expressionist Signed Original Portrait of Morpheus, "Morpheus"$609.99
Working in a vivid palette of clear jewel colors, Chimini Bague paints a compelling psychological study. He depicts Morpheus, the Greek god of dreams. Portrayed in expressionist style, the original portrait is almost hypnotic.

Colorful Starry Sky Woodcut Print by J. Borges in Brazil, "Starry Sky"$49.99
Stars can still be seen in the early morning sky where sun and moon linger briefly together. Yet bright birds have awakened and soar skyward amid fruit trees, bringing their many colors to this delightful naif composition. J. Borges creates a cheerful woodcut print that celebrates the beauty of the Brazilian countryside.
Xylograph (woodcut) print on paper, titled "Céu Estrelado" in Portuguese.
Naif Rio de Janeiro Favela Landscape Giclee Print on Canvas, "Lilac Carioca Favela"$89.99
Steep mountains line the shore of Guanabara Bay and jut out into the cool, blue waters. On the hillside, above the beaches, colorful favela homes are set in almost vertical clusters. Stairways run up and down and kits dance in the sea breeze in this lovely, lively composition. Ricardo Siccuro adds a realistic guitar and tambourine beside his signature in honor of Rio's wonderful music.
Titled "Favela Carioca Lilás" in Portuguese. The original painting is reproduced as a giclée print on canvas.
Thai Elephant Artist Painting in Red and Yellow, "Summer Adventure"$349.99
Brilliant colors leap excitedly across a field of white. Conjuring the excitement of a summer adventure, Jojo selects a clear palette of yellow, red and black. Deliberate brushwork clusters near the center yet ventures boldly toward the borders of his painting.
Asian elephants are an endangered species. By making the Asian elephants' paintings widely accessible to the general public, Novica hopes to help increase awareness, encourage conservation, and raise significant funds to assist endangered elephants throughout Asia. For more information, please refer to the elephant's biography.
The reverse side of this original painting features the Elephant Conservation Center's seal of authenticity, as well as Jojo's biographical information.
Please note: The elephants hold the paintbrush carefully, by the tip of their trunk — which is also the elephants' delicate nose area. Slight smudging, and an occasional water droplet, here and there, are to be expected on most elephant paintings. We like to consider that these imperfections add to the conversation value of each piece.
