Photographer's Note

Seen in downtown Funchal, a bronze sculpture of a man and two oxen pulling a sled with a wine barrel. It is a a reference to the production of Madeira Wine, a fortified wine for which the island is duly famous.

Now appropriately sitting outside a bar, it is the work of Portuguese sculptor Pedro Augusto Franco dos Anjos Teixeira (Born Paris 1908 – Died Sintra 1997). It was originally inaugurated 28 November 1994.
