Photographer's Note

This is an internal view of the small chapel. The mass was going to the end and when the priest asked for help of Mary I was moving because the Lady of F疸ima is my godmother, it was a moment of intense faith in few seconds while I was alone, my guide was parking.
You can see part of the murals here. The original ones were created my Alfredo Volpi, an Italian walls painter who became one of the most important names of Brazilian modern art. He loved to use Brazilian elements as the flags of Saint John festival, the kites, saints, the colonial houses, etc.. Few time after the murals were covered with ink and during a restore of the building a former disciple of the painter was invited to create something similar. Here we can see The Lady of F疸ima with a kite between her hands and the kite has a tail made with spools of thread, the halo of the Mary was made of flowers. In the lateral walls, not visible here, there are some spools of thread.
In the base of altar you can see the tiles of swallows created by Athos Bulc縊, similar the ones outside of the chapel.
In the image we can see the traditional image of Mary and the one created by the artist. The priest was surprised when he saw me with a camera in his direction.
You can see a sample of Volpi art in the link bellow:

Essa uma vista interna da capela. A missa estava chegando ao fim e enquanto o padre pedia a ajuda de Maria eu fiquei comovido, pois ela minha madrinha; foi um breve e intenso momento de f enquanto eu estava s, j que o meu guia estava estacionando o carro.
Podemos ver uma parte dos murais nessa foto, os originais eram uma cria鈬o de Volpi, um pintor de paredes italiano que se tornou mestre de arte moderna no Brasil, usando temas nacionais como bandeirinhas de S縊 Jo縊, fachadas coloniais, santos... As pinturas dele foram apagadas e anos depois um aluno dele foi convidado a fazer algo parecido na capela.
Vemos Maria com um papagaio de papel nas m縊s, reparem que a cauda do papagaio tem carret駟s de linha, havia mais carret駟s na parede ao lado. Na foto vemos a imagem tradicional de Maria e a outra mais moderna. reparem nos azulejos da base do altar, s縊 obra de Athos Bulc縊, o mesmo que criou aqueles que revestem, a capela e mostram andorinhas voando. O padre ficou surpreso ao ver uma c穃era apontada para ele.
