Dear Assaf,
This gorgeous spider looks to us like a North American species, the Silver Argiope, and there is a matching image of the ventral view on BugGuide.
  According to Corbis Images, the Silver Argiope, Argiope argentata, is also found in Brazil.  According to our sister site from Brazil, Insetologia, the Silver Argiope is known as Aranha de Prata.

This great, Daniel.
Thank you very much!
