The Riace Bronzes are two six-feet tall full-sized Greek sculptures which were recovered off the southern coast of Italy in the 1970's. In this book, their discovery is reimagined when a typical day of fishing is transformed into a romantic encounter. The bronze figure, who has spent two thousand years at sea, is a parallel figure to the fishermen, whose lives and work are the true subject of the book.
