1.In Festas de Lisboa, there is food and drink without limits, there are encounters around full tables, there is laughter and toasting, but by the end of the night, there is only silence, empty glasses and crack-bones on the floor. The sidewalk is adorned with remnants of the most beautiful night of Lisbon.
2.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. In this version, the cat seems to have been swallowed by the sardine, an inversion of the natural order of things. But when one looks more closely, one sees the natural order of things restored, one just has to pay attention to their expression.
3.Today, a sardine came to my window sill and asked me to tell a story about her ... and I did so. One of the magic things about image is that it allows us interpretative freedom. To discover various stories, inside someone’s story. This was my story, what’s yours?!
4.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. Entirely handpainted
5.This is a cat that truly loves Lisbon sardines. He ate so many sardines that, inevitably, he became one of them.
6.Esta sardinha encarnou um gato faminto, à espera de comer. Durante as festas de junho, os seus olhos estão a transformar-se em… sardinhas!
7.At the bottom of the sea there are white terrors, Where plants are animals And animals are flowers. Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen
8.There are a thousand and one ways to cook cod, probably the most typical fare in traditional Portuguese cuisine. This big cod is being prepared for our much-loved recipe of boiled cod with potatoes, cabbage, chickpeas, carrots and eggs. With a good drizzle of olive oil, it will be ready to be served with a suitable red wine.
9.Cat and Purring sardines.
10.In the universe of sardines, there is always a cat as a black hole…
11.It’s a tribute to the famous myth of the Barcelos rooster that saved a Galician and became part of the folklore and symbolic culture of Portugal. For the artist, since her childhood these colors and this myth in particular intensely refer to the Lusitanian aesthetics.
12.This sardine wanted to be Azorean. And what better way than disguising itself as a whale, an animal inherently connected with the culture of the Azores Archipelago. It doesn't go unnoticed!
13.This sardine warns of the damaging effects of plastic on the environment, namely the oceans. Defending the environment is everyone's responsibility, in everything we do, in everything we are in the world we live in. It's important that we think, every day, about how we can be more responsible.
