They are supplied by an even bigger army, the young refuse runner rats called, catadores, or pickers. The art of recycling is symbolized, by art pieces made of abandoned materials, all from various huge landfills surrounding Rio de Janeiro, especially in Jardim Gramacho. Vik's art is becoming increasingly in demand. The posh auction houses of London are waiting. The sewer rats are transformed, even as they demonstrate ecological reform, by getting paid from art sales.
