Album art[edit]

All artwork was conceived by Milton Pinto and produced by the graphic designer Fabricio Cavalcante. The cover art was inspired by the Cliffs of Moher, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. In July 2009, the cliffs were named one of 28 global finalists in the New Seven Wonders of the World project. The cover art depicts an imaginary landscape with the composer sitting and holding a bouquet of flowers in front of two cliffs, with a Shamrock (a symbol of Ireland) behind him.[3]
