In the collection of the British Museum and the New York Public Library. <br><br> "I was inspired to produce this etching, entitled ‘Rainforest Series: Brazilian Amazon’ when I read about Sister Dorothy Stang's commitment to the indigenous Brazilian population and their battle to protect the rainforest. After 40 years of working with local farmers, building schools and organizing a food co-operative, Sister Dorothy was executed in 2005 by 2 gunmen hired by a wealthy rancher. A new opera by Evan Mack called 'Angel of the Amazon' celebrating the life of Sister Dorothy will be produced by the Encompass New Opera Theatre. A contribution will be made from the proceeds of the sale of each etching to the Encompass New Opera Theatre for the development of the production.." - C. Aaron <br><br>
