Scugnizzo of the Forest II


[Series Exodus], (2023), oil on canvas, 50×40 cm



“Scugnizzo of the Forest II” captures the poignant beauty of indigenous children’s smiles.

This Scugnizzo, with a radiant smile, symbolizes a historic victory: the rejection of oil drilling within the Yasuni National Park in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Through this decision, we not only see the defense of biodiversity but also a response to global climate issues.

The Ecuadorian people have chosen life, becoming a shining example for worldwide governments.

This painting is a testimony of hope and change for good which both emerge when people get together to protect the environment.
