Stars and Infinite Darkness: Bonfim Bangles by Karina Matias

Great interpretation of one of Brazil's most... turistic tradition* *It started in 1809, the original ribbons were in silk, and embroided, and held "ex-votos", being used as necklaces as a reminder of one's promise. In the 1960's it came back in the wrists or ankles of hippies (in Bahia region). Now it is used to ask for 3 desires: you give 3 knots and wear it 'till it tears apart .
