The huge monument made of 240 granite bricks, weighing 50 tons each! The monument put side by side the Brazil's ethnic diversity! A beautiful sculpture created and built by Victor Brecheret!

After walking through the park on the way to Paulista I came across this monument at the exit. Very impressive and excellent design which I believe commemorates many things about the culture, history and diversity of São Paulo. Worth taking 15 minutes to walk around and take some pictures

Its nothing really special but if you visit Ibirapuera Park, its very close to it, so it worths to take a look, specially around sunset.

This monument honour the people that fight on a battle around year 1932 when Sao Paulo wanted to separated from the rest of the Brazil! It is huge and worth to stop by. 1 hour is enough.

This sculpture close of Ibirapuera park is designed by the famous Vitor Brecheret. It has became a symbol and post card of Brazil, with 240 granite blocks and was inaugurated in 1954 for the celebrations of the fourth century of the city of São Paulo. This work represents Brazilian pioneers, exposing its various ethnic groups and the effort to build and explore the country. In addition to Portuguese, there are black, mamluks and indians people (with crosses in the neck), pulling a monsoon canoe, used in river expeditions.
