The process of creation and production of the pieces demanded 8 months of continuous work of the artisans.

The artpieces, after exhibited in Fortaleza, were also presented on Museu da Vale (Vitória- ES); Exposição de Houston (EUA), at Sicardi Gallery : “Euryale Amazonica” (2014) ; Exposição do Museu da Vale – Vitoria – ES: “Atlântica Moderna: Purus e Negros” (2014), among others.
