Ver-o-Peso Market

This is a fine art print of the original watercolour & ink painting of the Ver-o-peso market, a market hall in Belém, Brazil, located at Guajará Bay riverside. It is called "Ver-o-Peso" following a colonial-era tradition where the goods in the market were brought to the "Casa do Haver-o-peso" ("Have-the-Weight House") to be weighed at which point they were taxed to the Portuguese Crown; since then the name has been contracted to Ver-o-Peso. This area has been declared national patrimony by the National Historical Museum due to its cultural value.
