piece contains a lot of meaningful symbols that make it really clear to the audience of his intentions. The snake that the leader is riding is the path that will unite the countries together. In my previous paragraph I mention that the purpose of having these game wasn’t to prove which country contains the better athletes(s) the purpose of the games was to unite the countries together meaning that it served as a path to unification. "It’s a pow wow in the true sense of the word — a gathering of nations."[3] This quote that’s within the article states that cultural believes are beginning to exchange already and lets not forget pictures that were taken illustrating that the clothing is a another symbol of unifying the countries. The rider in the art piece of “Mundo” shows that it’s the leader of attempting to unify these countries. Brazil itself serves as the leader who’s trying to unite the countries together.

Finally, when you read the article and look up some pictures about the indigenous games then you can interpret that if Xul Solar was currently living amongst us he will be extremely proud of this three-day unification.
