More info

The sculptures called 'The Muses' are inspired by the muses in Greek mythology.

Calliope was the Muse who presides over eloquence and epic poetry.

The Muses - Mini are produced in Brazil by Cores da Terra studio.

Cores da Terra provides jobs to over 100 people.
Men, woman and teenagers from humble origins are patiently educatded and professionalized as highly qualified ceramists.
The name of the studio "Cores da Terra" was coined by Selma because of her lifelong interest in clay and the experimental use of natural pigments.

In 1996, Selma Calheira received the price "Gente que Faz" because of her work with economically disadvantaged people in one of the poorest areas of Brazil.
Her dream became true: people can now stay in their area and survive with dignity on their salaries.
Their education allows them to be more qualified people and perhaps the destiny of the region now changes.
