    José Antonio da Silva was born (1921) and died (1973) in Alto do Moura, near Caruaru, Pernambuco in northeastern Brazil. Nicknamed Zé Caboclo, he became one of the most admired artists of Caruaru, a village known for its folk artists working with clay which included the world-famous Mestre Vitalino. He invented new techniques and forms, adopting the use of wire in the structure of the sculptures and bulging instead of inset eyes. Today his works are included in private and public collections throughout Brazil and world-wide.

    This beautiful piece depicts a typical scene from Brazil's impoverished rural Northeast where draught and famine have destroyed farmland and livestock, causing a mass migration of people from this region to Brazil's cities and better employment opportunities.
