São Paulo - The Indian and the City, Brazil

Pery, an Indian who is one of the central personages of the opera "Il Guarany", by Carlos Gomes, seems to leave its native forest astonished with Anhangabaú Valley urban forest, in Downtown São Paulo. The statue is part of the "Monument to Carlos Gomes", by Luigi Brizzolara, gift of the Italian community to the city by the time of Brazil Independence Centennial (1922). It’s installed in the staircases of Ramos de Azevedo Square, close to the Municipal Theater.
