On a visit to fantastic Rio in 1985, the artist discovered a beautiful and exotic golf course in an extraordinary setting at the foot of the Great Gavia Rock. Gavia is as loved by the Cariocas as Pao de Acuar (Sugerloaf) or the Corcovado (Christ statue) atop Hunchback Mountain. The neatly clipped links are carved out of a verdant profusion of tropical growth. And the towering majesty of Gavi dominates the scene, piercing the sky above the players on the green. Neiman decided to balance the composition by selecting four internationally acclaimed stars for the foreground. From left to right: Nick Faldo of Great Britan (this course was originally built by English residents who still proudly maintain the club), Spain’s Seve Ballesteros (silently urging the ball toward the cup), Gerhard Langer from Germany (carefully following Ballesteros’ putt), and Australian Greg Norman for “Down-Under” (tall, handsome and ramrod straight). The Carioca caddies in their traditional white overalls and sandals look on respectfully. The weather is ideal, the course tranquil and uncrowded. No tournament gallery interrupts the stillness. The artist has carefully crafted an image without extraneous subjects. We are left with the indelible impression he intended- great golf and the serenity of great Gavia.
