Actual map of the political division of Brazil and other details (entrances, geographical accidents, etc.) allowed by the used scale. On the counter clockwise direction, decorative figures allusive to the main economic circles; Pau Brazil, sugar cane, gold and other precious stones, rubber, coffee cultivation and finally the pre-salt (petroleum/oil).
Everybody asked me: “what about the map of Brazil, when are you going to do it?”. Well, I like to stylize my maps with historical contents that make people reflect, analyze and study history. I chose the economic circles, a theme in constant ebullition on our daily basis.
