Photographer's Note

There is a small museum at side of São Domingos Church with religious pieces. There are many beautiful pieces of art and some objects not so interesting. The most impressive was a Virgin Mary with Chinese face and long hair closed in a box of glass and silver, unfortunately it was impossible to take nice photos because the reflections. This crucifixe was another precious piece of art in ivory. Nowadays ivory is a prohibited material because the cruelty of its sources, but in fact it is an amazing material for sculptures and pieces of art and Chinese artists were masters in its use.

Há um pequeno museu de arte sacra ao lado da Igreja de São Domingos com muitas peças de grande valor e beleza e outras não tão importantes. A peça que mais me chamou a atenção foi uma imagem de Maria com rosto de mulher chinesa e longos cabelos, ela estava dentro de uma caixa de prata com vidros, mas era impossível tirar boas fotos dela por conta dos reflexos.
Vemos aqui uma magnífico crucifixo de marfim, hoje em dia esse material é execrado devido à crueldade com os animais, mas é realmente um material magnífico em esculturas e os artistas chineses eram mestres no seu uso.
