“- Do you want to take a picture of Maria? She is very beautiful!
- Sure, bring her here! Minutes later, Painkré (the indigenous girl portrayed in previous photos) brings Maria, a little doll whose body is painted with Kayapó motifs, just like her. The drawings were made to ‘train’ indigenous to paint other people’s faces.
- She looks just like me, doesn’t she? She doesn’t have ‘hairs above the eyes’! - asks Painkré, showing me the blue-eyed, white doll who, just like her, doesn’t have eyebrows.“
