Friendship Among Nations

It is becoming increasingly important the role played by the Chamber of Deputies as an representative institution of the values in which Brazil is recognized as a state, and the Brazilians, as a people. Therefore, it is natural that the Representatives who will occupy the Presidency receive in Brazil and other countries, gifts that reflect the respect and recognition concerning the Institution. As a rule established in 2003, these objects are given to the institution’s museum collection and become part of the Chamber of Deputies’ heritage.

Diplomatic Encounters

These objects are representative pieces of history, culture and art that make a beautiful and substantial panel of human wealth, differences that distinguish us as nations and define us as societies. Records of early human groups socially organized show gift giving as a goodwill gesture and a sign of amity and Peace, in which men and women give each other the best of themselves so they can live in Peace and harmony. This is the meaning we give to gifts received by the Chamber of Deputies, regardless of the materials or artistic expression.
