Saci Pererê in Urban Environment

Saci Pererê is a famous figure in the Brazilian Folklore. This is a street artist representing the boy, in Rio de Janeiro, in the street between the old Paço Imperial and Assembléia Legislativa, two historical buildings. The actor really had only one leg, and was short, just like Saci Pererê.
