Symbol of rural work, so dear to our national construction, is that of the hand plow opening the virgin land to plant food there. In this case, a peasant, wearing boots and a hat, performs the arduous task with his horse. The fence advances stuck in the ground and we see both the man and the horse the effort for work. The animal wears a collar from which it pulls the walking plow, plus a belly band and bridle. The branches and reins -from the bridle to the peasant's hands, and from the collar to the plow- are represented with bronze threads.
The garment of the farmer and the implements used remind us of the traditional use of the plow in Latin European countries: Spain, Italy or France.
The set, with the exception of the bronze threads, was made with the old lost wax technique. The work rests on a double pedestal of marble and wood.
