Geocache Description:

Recriação is a 5.3 m tall statue by brazilian artist Lucio Bittencourt. He explores scrap metal creating new forms. Each of his pieces proves that talent and imagination generate vigorous and harmonious aesthetic results.

He was born in 1953 in Mogi das Cruzes (São Paulo/Brazil), where he lives and works. He began his artistic career in 1979 and since then has produced more than 12 000 pieces including 200 monuments that reach 30 meters tall (100 feet) and are installed in public places in several cities.

It has about 200 awards, the first being in 1979 in the "Salão Oficial de Taubaté". He has participated in about two thousand individual and group exhibitions nationally and internationally and his works are spread over several places in Brazil and abroad in cities like such as Lisbon, Lyon, Paris and Puerto Rico.
