Photographer's Note

I was very far from the palace and I used my camera zoom to find this famous sculpture. Unfortunately the grass as covering part of them, but I guess you will be able to see them.
These sculptures were created by Alfredo Ceschiatti, the same who created the angels inside Brasilia Cathedral. Originally the name of them was "the Bathers" but soon the name was changed to IARAS. Brazilian mythology is very beautiful and vast. An IARA is an Indigenous divinity who live in the rivers of Brazil, in some aspects she looks like a mermaid, but in fact in the first mention to the legend, in the 16th century, the personage was masculine. These sculptures has classic mantles in the lower part, more Greek than Brazilian, but the name was changed, these two girls are taking care of their hairs after the bath.
Ceschiatti was a Brazilian, son of Italians, that became in love by art when visited Italy and decided to be an sculptor.
I will attach a link with a photo of these sculptures and you will have a chance to see how beautiful they are inside an island in the lake of the palace.

Eu estava muito longe do palácio e usei todo o zoom da minha câmera para apanhar estas esculturas, infelizmente até a grama as estava encobrindo, mas acho que vocês terão uma ideia de como elas são.
Essas esculturas foram criadas por Alfredo Ceschiatti, que era filho de italianos e ficou maravilhado com a arte italiana durante uma visita e se tornou artista plástico.
O nome original das esculturas era para ser "As Banhistas" mas lhes deram um nome mais brasileiro "As Iaras". A mitologia brasileira é rica e vasta e as Iaras são seres que habitariam os mares e rios do Brasil, um tipo de sereia, contudo a primeira menção desse mito conta que o personagem era masculino.
No link abaixo vocês poderão ver como as esculturas ficam bem diante do palácio.
