A collection of 142 xylographs created across two decades (1978-1998) are on display at CAIXA until 11 November, together telling their own bleak tale of the infamous and brutal Canudos civil war, the bloodiest uprising in the country's history. Adir Botelho, considered to be among the most famous exponents of the woodcut style, captures the barbary in the simple expressions of his characters, the complete lack of colour merely adding to the unravelling drama from the murmerings of unrest to the brutality of the army's suppression.
