A mesmerising story ...recalling the " miracle" performed by "Our Lady of
Caacupé"( seen on the left ) saving the life of the Guarani who was then surrounded by a fierce tribe who had refused to be converted to Christianism !
He is seen here sculpting in the wood of the trunk where he hid, , an image of the Lady -- the promise he made to thank her for protecting him, I believe ..
I hope I have got this story right !! :-))
Splendid colours Diana..

Totally correct my clever friend! I did not bother to include the story as I thought most would not bother to read it...but I neglected to think of you! well told.
It also symbolises to me the superimposition of a culture upon another....and the Guarani did not fare well in the long run.....
Bisous xxxx ;-))
