Long Description:
This relief sculpture in bronze can be found in the center of the town of Torres Vedras, being a homage to the men who work on the fields placed by the City of Torres Vedras and the bank Caixa de Crédito Agrícola.

The author of the sculpture was Soares Branco, which was than placed in the vicinity of the local high school.
