Monument “Fishermen” – the original sculpture, installed in 1991 on the shore of the Petrozavodsk bay of Lake Onega, Petrozavodsk. Author of the composition – sculptor Rafael Consuegra from the twin city of Duluth, Minnesota, USA. Rafael Consuegra was directly involved in the installation and welding of structures that have been made on the Petrozavodsk machine plant. According to the author, the composition of two fishermen with the net should become a symbol of the joint Russian-American creative labor. It should be noted, it was the difficult year of the collapse of the USSR. At first, residents of Petrozavodsk reacted skeptically to the present, as the fishermen seemed weird and even suspicious to them. In addition, made of metal rods fishermen, and especially the net in their hands looked like a spy antenna …
Fortunately, time has shown the sincerity of intentions of the authors of the monument, and “fishermen” have become one of the most visited sights of the city.

The name of this monument “Frightened fisherman”. The sculpture installed in the yard on Fedorov creek in Novgorod. In my opinion, he is more shocked than frightened
