As the lungs of the world, the Amazon forest is completely mysterious and magical. One of the exceptional artists TheFOB supports, influenced by the power of the Amazon, shares his inspiration:
“I thoroughly know the Amazon, its life, its nature, its customs, its people, the fauna and flora of that region. I travelled through the Juruá river, I went through its straights and holes, I explored streams and paranás, I lived in intimate communion with the environment and with the inhabitants of the forest. From loving and feeling greatly, my heart one day overflowed with emotion and I decided to show the world a little of what I’ve seen and lived. Using a rare style of art was the most coherent manner I found to talk about being and the Amazon.” ~Marqueson P. Silva (freely translated from his website, to check it out click here.)
Marqueson creates intricate, detailed, perfect wood marquetry pieces inspired by the power and beauty of the Amazon. The huge rivers in the Amazon, the stories, myths, legends, the songs and people are some of the inspirations portrayed in the most diverse pieces he produces. Marqueson’s creations range from a special picture frame, a magical jewelry box, to an exquisite purse.
