- Sardine design
The sardine collection by Bordallo Pinheiro results from a collaboration between the earthenware factory of Caldas da Rainha, EGEAC (Lisbon’s Cultural and Animation municipal entity) and Lisbon’s City Council. The original Bordallo Pinheiro sardine, designed in the XIX century, due to its classic three-dimensional nature, became the ideal support for receiving the creative work from EGEAC. Designed by Raquel Krugel. 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 colours and this myth in particular intensely refer to the Lusitanian aesthetics.
