"The machete symbolizes the human being's eagerness to tame nature and reap its benefits. It is a tool that has been modified in countless ways to obtain greater yield from the services provided by ecosystems, such as crops, or to affirm the position of the human being as a dominant species, both among men themselves and in the face of nature". The book De Punta a Cabo is an extensive collection of 389 machetes of different styles and sizes, all created in the period between 1870 and 1970. This curated and carefully preserved collection was created by historian and archaeologist Dr. Ovidio Dávila and is currently on exhibit at Hacienda La Esperanza in Manatí. De Punta a Cabo allows you to read and observe through a photograph each one of these machetes.
