Thank you Paleophilatelie! Named after the founder and patron, Francisco Alves who was the abbot of Bacal, the Abade de Bacal Museum celebrates its centenary this year. This stamp and a s/s with a painting, chest and sculpture were issued on February 16 2016. Any guesses on these artifacts? A hammered gold fibula? and stone sculpture from..?

The dark patches on the sand dunes are water pools formed during the rainy season. Even fish can survive in this intermittent environment. I wonder if this figurine was found in these dunes. Allegedly, the Caete indigenous people resided in this area until it became covered with sand. If this figurine was created by them, it looks rather recent, possibly depicting someone encountered at contact?
