Angelitos Negros

“…These black angels are symbols of innocence and purity. They recall children of the favelas who are left alone behind a curtain that seems to protect them against a world very dangerous. Yet at the same time the curtain keeps them imprisoned and makes their access to our world difficult. Thus they remain excluded.”

(Ode to the Childhood)
