  About the artwork  

“Enough of self-destruction and of letting things slide”

Mundano 

This work is a reinterpretation of the Brazilian 50 reals paper Banknote currency. The artwork was inspired by the environmental disaster which arose out of the burning of the Pantanal Swamp in 2020. This original and unique work is an outraged shout-out by the artist concerning the burning of the Pantanal that, in this year alone, has already consumed 25% of this unique biome. The Pantanal Swamp is a massive area in the western central part of Brazil, which is bounded by Bolivia and Paraguay.  There have been more than 2.3 million hectares of forest fires.

This historic work was acquired on August 20th, 2020 through an auction promoted by the artist/activist Mundano on his instagram, @mundano_sp. All of the proceeds were donated to @sospantanal to help control the fire. This assistance was utilized in the purchasing of fire fighting equipment and  by helping to feed the animals that survived the devastation. What will  be needed in the future is assistance in restoring the biome that has been destroyed in the Pantanal.
