This caricature was for a wedding invitation and incorporated some themes of Brazil and Ireland. In the background, there’s an image of the Farol da Barra light house in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. There’s also Baiana de Acaraje (ladies dressing in typical traditional Baiana de Acaraje dress). My favourite detail this couple decided on was a leprechaun playing Capoeira (the Brazilian martial art) with a Capoeirista (Brazilian fighter). The couple is pictured standing on sand as they were getting married by the beach near Achill. Lastly there’s an image of Croagh Patrick in the background.
