1.This sardine conveys the festive spirit of a typical Lisbon quarter. Is a window of Alfama full of life, adorned with precept, ready to receive Lisbon festivities, the city’s most colorful nights.
2.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.
3.The Portuguese home encompasses figures, sounds and textures. The typical Portuguese home has a floor that creaks, a replica of Our Lady of Fatima, a slanted reproduction of the Crying Boy, and a doily, on top of which an old TV set sits. The classic Portuguese movie Lisbon’s Song is on, with Beatriz Costa’s bangs. This is clearly a Portuguese home!
4.Immersed in the diversity of cultures that have always inhabited the Lisbon quarter of Mouraria, one of the most traditional neighborhoods in the city, this sardine maintains its Portuguese identity with its tiles and bush basil pots, so typical of Lisbon.
5.Inspired by the numerous existing lighthouses along the Portuguese coast, this Sardine refers to the idea of travelling to a distant world, whether real or imaginary, as well as the eternal return home after its discovery.
6.This is a futuristic sardine, which will drink not the traditional bread, but the future. It is a sardine that flies through the universe, that likes this planet but that dreams to know other worlds and its people. There is more to life than ours! It is a sardine that flies, thus fleeing the embers.
