Hand-painted ceramic sardines from Portugal. Each sardine is decorated by a different artist. Symbolically, the gift of a sardine represents abundance and prosperity.
About this style: 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 expression.
