Chiquinho’s Memorial

In the Xylography Museum front yard there is a small concrete monument marking the spot where Chiquinho, a dog, is buried, and whose remains shall remain there forever.


Chiquinho, the “narrator” of a series of travel books – the series “Paws” – published by Editora Mantiqueira, sponsor of the Xylography Museum, was the inspiration for the publishing house logo. These books, by Antonio F. Costella, granted commercial success to the publishing house, and helped it to support the museum’s maintenance costs.
Chiquinho’s biography is also the subject of the book “Vida de Cachorro – Biografia não autorizada” (“A Dog’s Life – An Unauthorized Biography”).



In the museum shop the visitors can purchase: printings by several artists; tools, wood and other materials to make woodcuts and wood engraving printings; books, including specialized books (see www.editoramantiqueira.com.br) ; and several gifts, such as postal cards, T-shirts, bags, handicrafts etc.
