At SpaceWhale® & Company we adore Portugal and we travel there as often as we can. There is nothing more Portuguese than the iconic sardines of Bordallo Pinheiro which have become the unofficial emblem of Lisbon.

We chose the quirkiest of it all a squalid sardine showing all it’s fish bones.

Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro is one of the most influential people of nineteenth-century Portuguese culture, with a remarkable production particularly regarding the areas of humoristic drawing, caricature and ceramic creation.

His work represents an unsettling, ever timely reality and a fundamental document for the political, social, cultural and ideological study of a time period.
