Resumo

Este artigo foca-se em objetos específicos, colocando-os num contexto histórico e contemporâneo, utilizando como fontes de pesquisa arquivos e a investigação realizada
numa expedição à Guiana (2010). As práticas de Everard im Thurn (explorador, botânico e fotógrafo) irão também ser discutidas, de modo, a que se possa revelar as ‘histórias
inter-culturais’. Serão expostos alguns exemplos em que é possível ver as histórias por detrás dos objetos, mostrando como os europeus absorveram elementos do conhecimento indígena, bem como como os ameríndios
absorveram elementos europeus. Através dos objetos, o presente artigo tem como objetivo compreender o interesse de Everard im Thurn em certos itens e perceber
como estes foram obtidos.
