Story of the Parrot's Resurrection

Eduardo Galeano

Antonio Santos (sculptures)

«The man recovered his speech,
and explained that the parrot had drowned
And the girl had cried and the orange had undressed
And the fire had gone out and the wall had lost a stone.»

The death of the parrot saddened everyone: a girl, an orange, the fire, the wind... Their sadness was so great that news spread up to the heavens. How could happiness ever return? A legend from North East Brazil about death and rebirth, which Eduardo Galeano tells in simple words to create a profound, magical tale. Sculptures by Antonio Santos add extraordinary visual beauty to the story.
