"La Sardine On Carrasco"
or sardine on the gibbet




 
 
 
THE ILLUSTRATION 

The main idea behind this illustration
was to combine the historical context
of the vestiges of the inquisition in Lisbon
with one of the great cultural icons
of the city - the sardine.

 



"PATIO OF THE EXECUTOR"

Luís Alves, “the Black”

"Pátio do Carrasco"Luís the Black





THE DRAWINGS

I used the historical factor that the patio represents and decided to use the scythe as an element of the Hangman, since he was one of the patio´s residents.

The other element is the sardine, one of the most known and loved symbols at the Lisbon festivities.
There is no party without people "executing" these delicious fish.

THE LOGO

Thus i decided to incorporate these two icons into creating a theme, as if an execution was going to take place at the party. There is some irony in the fact that nowadays sardines are being "executed" on the patio of the last Hangman...

THE POSTER

The motive behind the creation of the event "La Sardine On Carrasco" came from the fusion between the name & location of the party "PATIO OF THE EXECUTOR"
and the Sardine, one of the traditional icons of portuguese popular festivities.



THE PICTURES

13 June is a public holiday in Lisbon. The festivities of the city are marked by (carnival) processions, small neighborhood traditional parties and marriages of the Saint António where various couples give their wedding vowes together.

Lisboners are used to celebrating the Saint António on the streets of the city by decorating their houses and historical neighborhoods with colorful adornments and by placing little basil pots on their windows.

The tradition stipulates that the revelers should eat grilled sardines, caldo verde and grilled paprikas.
