the new statue

This statue is new in town. I have not had time to read what it should. Therefore, I see no answers to many questions. I recognize the cap of "villain", traditional island of Madeira. Then I see half naked body of a woman. A cloth to cover their eyes and hand position seems to indicate that play a game popular in Portugal is called "cabra cega"
Esta estátua é recente na cidade. Ainda não tive ocasião de ler a que se deve. Por isso, vejo-a sem respostas a muitas interrogações. Reconheço o barrete de "vilão", tradicional da ilha da Madeira. Depois vejo meio corpo nú de mulher. Um pano a tapar os olhos e a posição das mãos parece indicar que brinca a um jogo popular que em Portugal é chamado "cabra-cega".

  5. It might also tell that one is able to feel the warmth of the sun, its position, even without the ability to see.

    Please have a wonderful Wednesday.
