The Amazonia.br exhibition brings together some real life elements, which represent indigenous life in the Amazon. Among the exhibits are life-size reproductions of typical jungle homes, set up by scenographer Gringo Cardia. Another exhibit is simply a room with its walls painted black to represent the deforestation of the Amazon. From that room’s wooden floor comes smoke to symbolize a burning forest. Photos by Brazilian photographer Araquem Alcantara and speech by Indian chief Raoni during the exhibition.
