    After analysing The Guardian article database, which contains information regarding Portugal information which spans from the year 2000 to 2010, the development of a metaphor to be represented by means of an infographic to represent the portuguese culture took place. The Portuguese culture was represented as being an Iceberg, in which the surfacing area represents what is mentioned by the Guardian in terms of the Art, Design, Music, Book and Film categories. Regarding the submerged part, it’s understood as a big slice of the portu- guese culture which is not known or talked about the british journal. It’s important to acknowledge that the infographic represents only the most talked portuguese people mentioned in the articles, not by devaluing them but only in an attempt to transmit in a more understandable and direct way what parts of our culture are seen.
