Homenagem a Zumbi dos Palmares

Homenagem a Zumbi dos Palmares

The great warrior Zumbi dos Palmares is recognized in this statue by Márcia Magno. Located in Pelhourinho, Salvador do Bahia, BRAZIL. The photograph’s double expose is intended to capture his elusive movements in war. Zumbi stands with one foot resting against the shin of his other leg; a gesture adopted upon sustaining an injury battling the Portuguese enslavers of Brazil in the mid-1600’s. He went on to govern one of the first free states in the Americas known as the Quilombo dos Palmares. Photo: Dowoti Désir, 2011
