The Afterlives of Chico Rei

Lee, Ana Paulina

Abstract This article analyzes the way that enslaved and free people of color engaged in ways of seeing that were reflective of early modern forms of globalization, where mobility unfixed geographical specificity of cultural objects, enabling different interpretations based on newfound juxtapositions. It examines the religious art and architecture found inside the Nossa Senhora do Rosário, do Alto da Cruz do Padre Faria, commonly known as the Igreja de Santa Efigênia in Ouro Preto, Brazil
