Sardine - Ukiyoe

Iwashi-Nobori is a sardine inspired by the Japanese Koinoboshi. Koinoboshi is the Children’s Day, and the carp is the symbol of strength, persistence, bravery and success. This Portuguese sardine, painted Ukiyoe-style, wishes strength, persistence, bravery and success to Portuguese children
 
The Sardine collection by Bordallo Pinheiro results from a collaboration between the Earthenware Factory of Caldas da Rainha, founded in 1884 by Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, and EGEAC/ Municipality of Lisbon. 
 

The original Bordallo Pinheiro’s Sardine, due to its classic three-dimensional nature, became the ideal support for receiving the creative work that the “Festas de Lisboa/EGEAC” (Lisbon Festivities) have been developing since 2003, which granted the Sardine the status of icon of the city.

The collection of the Sardine by Bordallo Pinheiro is reviewed annually, with the introduction of new illustrations and the discontinuation of others. Each year will thus be an unique opportunity to add to the collection.
