Unidentified weevil in Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest

I came across this amazing weevil while exploring the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil on 7th November. It was probably 1.5 to 2 inches long and had the most amazing markings which reminded me of African tribal art. I would love to know what it is and would be grateful if you are able to identify for me – thank you.
South-east Brazil, Atlantic Rainforest
This is at least the third Weevil image we have received in the past several years, and we have never had much success with identifying the species. Some countries have excellent websites for the identification of their native insects, but sadly, Brazil is not one of them.
