Seeing three fishermen straining as a team just offshore of Armação Beach is a perfect tribute to Búzios’ long history as a fishing community. At high tide, the full-size figures are knee deep in water as they tug together on a fishing net. The ensemble is very lifelike. The bronze sculptures were created in 2000 by Brazilian native and now local resident Christina Motta. Several of her Realism creations are featured in Búzios, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo plus other countries around the world.
