The Project Nossa Senhora da Favela (Our Lady of the Slam) had some special requirements:
1.- To create a representation of a divine being, as a Virgin or Saint..
2.- The Virgin needs to be part of the vernacular artistic symbolism of America, as in oposition of the Old Continent, but keeping some of them.
3.- The Nossa Senhora da Favela has to represent several concepts: Africa, the indigenous people in Latin America and Brazil, Daime ( Santo Daime is a syncretic religion founded in the 1930s in the Brazilian Amazonian state of Acre), Shamanism, Umbanda & Orixas, which are part of the Spiritual African legacy in Brazil, including the Iemanjá deity, goddess of the sea.
