“O Sítio Roberto Burle Marx, SRBM, é uma obra de criação continuada, de criação que começa e não se extingue, que avança pelo tempo até que seu autor se vai, sai de cena (Luiz Egídio)."

Nice carrancas!

Carranca é uma escultura em madeira que os barqueiros do Rio São Francisco assentavam na proa de seus barcos com a finalidade de espantar os maus espíritos.

Carranca is a wood sculpture inthe prow of the boats in São Francisco River, Brazil, used to drive off the bad spirits, and keep the ride safe.

Yes and these are very nice specimens of the more authentic boat figure head style rather than the tourist shop versions. Those are interesting too. My son has quite a collection covering styles over a couple of decades.
