The roots create the fruits. An homage to my father and his Brazilian "Gaucho" roots. Gaucho is a South American "cowboy" - a skilled horseman, reputed to be brave and unruly. The figure of the gaucho is a folk symbol of Uruguay, Argentina, Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil, and the south of Chilean Patagonia.
