284: World Cup Art
When I was in the historic town of Sabará on a Sunday, my eye caught this street art. Observing the material next to it, that drawing was still underway to complete. The leopard represented the mascot of the Soccer World Cup in South Africa, to which the Brazilian team would participate. As known, that participation was not particularly successful: the Divine Canaries were defeated by the Orange Lions, the Dutch squad that would later reach the finals. At the time of the photo, many Brazilians still had hope for their sixth Cup, the Hexa.
