Adolfo Viana de Souza

Born in Januria in the state of Minas Gerais, a city on the São Francisco River (Old Chico). José Adolfo, uses the influence of the carrancas of the Old Chico in his life to inspire himself and create his sculptures and so he makes a rereading of the carrancas with a feminine face that symbolizes the Mother of Water, the Mermaid that protects the river São Francisco.

A clay sculpture, shaped by hand and coloured with natural clay paint.
