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 Jose Feitor. 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 expressions.
