“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Are you looking at Edite Melo's abstract sea paintings of Adamaster (the monster at the Cape of Storms in Camoes's Lusiads) in the Maritime Museum in Belem? If not, you'd enjoy them. Though it's a bit of a hike down the river from downtown.
