I read a literary text originally written in Portuguese, The monologue of hands by Giuseppe Ghiaroni. I can't understand this passage in Latin :
O autor do "Homo Rebus" lembra que a mão foi o primeiro prato para o alimento e o primeiro copo para a bebida.
The author of "Homo Rebus" reminds us that the hand was the first plate for food and the first glass for beverage. [my translation]
First I thought Homo Rebus was the title of a Latin literary work. But I couldn't find any work with this title.
Is there any famous passage in Latin language with the expression homo rebus that refers to the hand ?
