These curious clay sculptures were made by a former diamond miner to honor his colleagues that died at work in this same mine, located in Chapada Diamantina, BA, Brazil. Most of the miners were slaves, and surprisingly this mine was active until the 1950′s, more than sixty years after the slavery has been officially banned from Brazil.
