Inspired in the portrait of Anna of Tyrol by Frans Pourbus the Younger, 1603 this allegorical painting is very close to my heart, and it is an attempt to heal from a relationship that has been one of the most inspirational and emotional experiences of my life. Anna and I were born in the same date, exactly 400 years apart from one another and my former partner was born in this same region in Austria. This painting presents common elements used in my paintings, such as royal symbols, my spiritual guide - Exu - and coconut trees. This plant often symbolises an idealic paradise and reminds me of the tree standing in the entrance of my home in Brazil. The drawing is a homage to my dreams about Rio, violence, love and a repeatedly broken heart.
