Curupira, The Forest Protector
In this work, I propose a remake of one of the brazilian folklore legends: The Curupira. Personal project of folk scenes with a concept application on book cover.
The Curupira is one of the creatures who protects animals and forests. Its name is originally from Tupi - the most widespread etymological interpretation is that of "curu" (boy) and "pira" (body), Kid body.
