Collection: Sardine

Amália

A gaze at such a Portuguese way of feeling. The true meaning of “saudade”, so well translated by the words and sounds in the voice of this artist, who belongs to us as much as the sardine. Ours and the world’s. And about her [as one fado says] “the walls will confess nothing”...

Under the Sun

Can a sardine surf? It is so fresh and knows how to jump, to master the bottom turn, the off-the-lip and the float. It performs everything to get the perfect wave. But then the sea calms down and feels like resting. Our sardine loves to sunbathe!
$35.00

Flock

The popular saying “He who laughs last, laughs best” was the starting point of this sardine. Sometimes the “last” one is the one who becomes the winner and ends up flying higher. “Bando” may go alone or in a group, but goes further for sure.

Cacilheira

The “Cacilheira” [Ferryboat] decided to recreate the connection between the two banks of the river Tagus. A whirlwind of going back and forth, on her trips to Trafaria to go to the beach, or in the daily rhythm to go to work between the port of Cacilhas and Cais do Sodré. That’s quite a river!

Everlasting Song

Economy

“A Galinha Choca da Economia” (The broody hen of Economics) was the cover of the magazine “A Paródia” in 1900, where Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro expressed his discontent towards the political life of the country and decided to caricature the different aspects of Portugal’s social and economic reality at that time …. Or is it nowadays?

Electric 28

The sardine “Eléctrica 28” wanted to make the most charismatic route of Lisbon and convey the experiences of its inhabitants. But not only them, because nowadays there are more tourists than locals. From Estrela to Graça, including the Basílica da Estrela, the Chiado, the Sé, the viewpoints over the river Tagus and the Feira da Ladra, this sardine does not stop. It’s really electric!
$35.00

Finance

“O Grande Cão da Finança” (the Big Dog of Finance) was on the cover of the magazine “A Paródia “, in 1900, and it caricatures the finances wearing the collar of the deficit. “No matter how many cakes they gave it; the damn dog won’t die!”. It is the result of the despair that Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro begins to feel in the face of political manipulation and opportunism, raising the awareness of the society at the time. Never goes out of style.

Freedom

It’s called “Freedom” because it was inspired by the Carnation Revolution. The character of Salgueiro Maia, emblematic character of the 25th of April, was used as the basis for representing this member of the armed forces. Red carnation Sardine, symbol of the peaceful revolution.

If there is something that characterizes Lisbon Festivities, it is the bailaricos (popular dancing)! And why not add our sardine to the dance?

Sardine - Pessoana

Because it is of the Portuguese, father of broad seas, to want, to be able to simply:be nothing. And be someone in a sea of people. Be a person. Flood. Dry out. Cry. Float. Come up and dive in again.

Sardine - Santa Justa

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.

Sardine - Sardine Natural

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 Tagus Sardine has the best view of Lisbon. From the river she sees the people, the roofs and the Castle; she sees the bridge and the boats, and the departures and returns that make the city live.

Sardine - Purring

This sardine tells a story of love and greed among animals. The sardine usually ends up in the cat’s mouth, who in the end licks his paws in the sun.

But when one looks more closely, one sees the natural order of things restored, one just has to pay attention to their expression.
