“Representing real people”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

At last a group of statues of poor common people. Really much more representatives than those statues of conquerors, priests, kings or even dictators...

“An excellent and fun sculpture”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Saw a postcard of this on the ferry to Santander and was delighted to chance upon it during our evening stroll. It is even better in reality and very well crafted.

We were amused that a fisherman had used one of the bathers to hold and extra rod for him. However, a local woman was very cross with him and continue to remonstrate long after he had removed it and despite us repeating that we were sorry we didn't understand.
