This dissertation aims through the threads that surround of the handmade objects produced by Fatima Dutra Basto, called Fatinha. She was born and lives in Olhos D'Água, one historically meeting place. Fatinha produces saints and images with corn straw and Banana fiber. There are multiple lines that shrink these objects and Fatinha: Olhos D'Água district, belonging to the municipality of Alexânia-GO, with its history and landscape, Santo Antônio square, the Feira do Troca and local religiosity. We look for these threads, by understanding that object is not isolated in itself, but has stories, from who did it, where it came from, the knowledge and techniques that were developed to the final product. The semi-structured interviews, along with participant observation, helped us to produce the ethnographic elements that will be shared in this dissertation. Thus, among the elements that configure this research, we highlight the place, the craft objects, their technical processes and the narratives of Fatinha, about her history and the objects produced by her. The elements discussed here complement each other and blend together. In this way, we think that in order to understand the craft objects, it is necessary to go through and understand the lines that surround it.
