"Caravela de Alfama anavegar o mar da calçada"
by Hauke

In this illustration, an imaginary alfama-caravel is sailing a sea of cobblestones.
A lonely figure that looks like Fernando Pessoa is watching it sailing into the night.
The wind is scattering sheets of paper around him. Maybe it is his unwritten poetry.

Alfama is one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, it stretches down from the S.Jorge castle to the Tagus river.
A long time ago Alfama was home to sailors and merchants that would explore the seven seas.
This alfama-caravel carries a whole house on its deck and some of the inhabitants can be seen.
An old lady is hanging out the laundry and there is a streetlamp with a raven sitting on top of it.
The raven is the symbol of the city of Lisbon.

(The caravel was a small, highly maneuverable sailing ship developed in the 15th century by the Portuguese to explore along the West African coast and into the Atlantic Ocean.)
