Urban Art Porto in Lisbon "Pacha Mama" artwork by the Brazilian artist Danka Umbert @dankaumbert at Boteco da Dri @botecodadri at Cais do Sodre
Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. She is also known as the earth/time mother. In Inca mythology, Pachamama is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting, embodies the mountains, and causes earthquakes. She is also an ever-present and independent deity who has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on this earth. Her shrines are hallowed rocks, or the boles of legendary trees, and her artists envision her as an adult female bearing harvests of potatoes and coca leaves. The four cosmological Quechua principles – Water, Earth, Sun, and Moon– claim Pachamama as their prime origin. Priests sacrifice llamas, cuy (guinea pigs), and elaborate, miniature, burned garments to her. Pachamama is the mother of Inti the sun god and Mama Killa the moon goddess. Pachamama is said to also be the wife of Inti, her son.

He improved his technique with much practice and studies, started his first drawing course at 13 and continued practicing on canvas, boards, fabric ... after receiving tips from other artists in the region, such as Driin and Paulo Gouveia, decided to convert his feelings. in street art through graffiti. The streets of Florianópolis soon recognized the quality of their work and reciprocated with the inspiration of the name Altus Baita, which represents something cool and refers to its origins.

Tale of a hero
I don't know maybe its just a novel to read or series to watch. But maybe and just maybe its an entire life in a nutshell. Consisting of all the ups and downs one faces through the journey of life. .
Starting right from Harry's childhood, a small room beneath the stairs, it taught us to stay strong, stay strong no matter what, cause if its not happy how could it be the end.
Seeing Ron, Hermoine and Harry, it made me wonder what friendship means, maybe its bunking classes together, maybe always hanging out together, maybe sharing lunch, maybe prepping you for your exam a day before, or maybe its above all this. Maybe its an invisible force or a strange power, that doesn't require words to understand each other. But it also made me wonder whether it is as fragile as love, and what about love and friendship, i mean who wins
Draco Malfoy, I guess my perception might be a little different from yours, but I think he was just trying to fit in the shoes of his father, he was under a lot of pressure, pressure to live up to the expectations that some people had of him. Trying to live up to something, it surely takes its toll.
Professor Severus Snape, an epitome of unrequited love or maybe just a fool. One of the strongest person I would say, undoubtedly. It takes an immense amount of mental strength to survive what he went through. But it makes me doubt what i said earlier, "If its not happy, how could it be the end", maybe its just a saying and does not work in real life, I don't know, you decide.
After all this time
