NOSSA SENHORA DE APARECIDA

This black & white woodblock print, called a xilogravura,
shows an image of the Patroness of Brazil, Our Lady of Aparecida, who is always pictured with black face and hands. Afro-Brazilianshave a special devotion to Our Lady of Aparecida .

The artist of "Nossa Senhora de Apaecida" is J. Miguel Borges, son of J. Borges, one of the best known artists and writers of cordel. He maintains a studio not far from his father in the small community of Bezerros, about 70 miles from Recife, Brazil.

These block prints were originally developed as covers for the chapbooks of literatura de cordel. Gradually artists who designed covers for the small chapbooks created larger images to sell. The subjects of these prints is often humorous or imaginative.
