Super Zé Sardine

After having courageously faced the austerity policies, the interference of Troika and the corruption scandals, behold our Zé is still standing.

Zé Povinho is now a superhero.
Standing tall, he shows courage and perseverance and is ready to face all tempests with a sole purpose: to succeed.

Super Zé, who is alive inside each one of us, resists, persists and never gives up.

Zé Povinho is an historical piece for portugueses. He became the symbol of the portuguese working class, created by Bordallo Pinheiro.
Joseph People - a simple man fighting against political and injustice situations.

The sardines are made with high quality colors and decals, which allows them to have a very strong, intense and beautifull glow and color.
All the decorating process in each sardine is manual. The decoration is performed by decal process, which takes on average 10 minutes, producing only a few per day.

Each Bordallian sardine is wrapped in a original packaging to simulate a sheet of newspaper, in a throwback to the tradition of the sale of this fish in Lisbon, dating back to the XVIII century, between typical selling sayings, from the fishmongers.
