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 Rui Unas. Comedian Rui Unas lives in the South Bank, across the river from Lisbon. Rumour has it, he experiences vertigo when approaching the bridge, and that you would have to carry him on a bier to make him set foot on the ferry to Lisbon. But he found a solution to the problem afflicting him. The statue of Christ the King gave him superpowers! Now he can use a Bordallo sardine and swim to Lisbon, or grow wings and fly there.
