It was just an anonymous and pale Sardine. It sought colour and participated
in the “Festas de Lisboa” (Lisbon Festivities). As the event’s icon, it deserved a
monumental illustration. So, I tried to create a symbiosis between the sardine
and the Santa Justa Elevator. The Santa Justa Sardine, once anonymous and
pale, now parades in colour and tradition.

The sardine, with its silvery blue and black hues, darker on the back and lighter on the sides and belly, is found in the northeast Atlantic and the
Mediterranean Sea, where it dwells on coastal areas, between 25 and 100 meters deep.
It undertakes migrations in large shoals that protect fish
from predators during the day, in deeper waters, and move at night-time to shallower waters
to feed on algae and small crustaceans.
It reproduces from October to April, a time when sardines
are leaner and not so tasty.
The sardine is the most popular fish in summer festivals and fairs in Portugal, as well as the main species used in the
Portuguese canning industry.
The Tenório Sardine is a true portent of the Portuguese guitar. Known in the
most exclusive world of Fado for being a bon vivant, irresistibly seductive
and a confessed lover of the nightlife and “escabeche” (pickle), Tenório
oozes charm through all of his scales. And no gilt-head bream, mullet or ray
can resist his charms.

Tóni is a Sardine prone to gallantry, born as a tribute to the Lisbon hustler.
A raunchy pushy sort, with a loud mouth and fire in his belly, Tón i makes a
living out of odd jobs. Up one street, down an alleyway, he walks nimble,
with a watchful thirsty eye, while distributing flirts to the girls that pass by –
“Eh carapau” “hey mackerel!”
