Located in the state of São Paulo ¿ Brazil, the city of Aparecida is famous not only for its catholic Basilic of Our Lady Aparecida, but also for its great commercial importance. In any case, the main reference to the city remains the "Aparecida Image" ¿ a famous clay sculpture found in a river. On an ethnographic point of view, it is insufficient to define it based only on Religion, Economics or Politics. Aparecida has a multivalent name, and therefore this dissertation has the objective to explore all the anthropological potencies of this spaces, images and meanings (AU)
