This work narrates the nocturnal encounter of four fish in the sea of Huanchaco beach (Trujillo); fish that for the artist represent her maternal grandmother, her mother, her sister and herself. In the scene, the caballitos de totora  [1]  they rest erect, while the golden sea remains in constant activity and its waves shelter the womanly gathering; meeting in which ideas are shared and knowledge is exchanged.

[1] Caballitos de totora are boats woven with reed reed ( Schoenoplectus californicus ). They measure approximately 5 meters high by 1 meter wide, and are often used to transport fishermen. In Peru they have been used since approximately 1500 BCE.
