This is a sacred territory. The figure of a quiet and dark Iemanjá arises over an altar full of offerings. The figure flanked by two secret letters - an N and an A - appears on a background that evokes geometrically sea waves. On her chest, emerges a delicate iconography of an heart with an eye, a key, a ladder, an anchor.
“I can not remember”, and “I will never forget” and “The whole head in the moon” are the phrases that we can find painted in this colorful wall, intervened during the Todos Festival, an event dedicated to multiculturalism. Honoring the heritage of calligraphic graffiti, those testimonies were translated into the various languages spoken in this part of town - Hindi, Croatian, and Creole.
A graffiti black and white, representing the left two crows with a man floating monk robes rest in a thorny branch, a caravel right, and center, on top of an existing door with grids. Ravens and caravel are the symbols of Lisbon, and the man with monk's robes is São Vicente (St. Vincent), the patron saint of Lisbon.

Occupying the left lane is the three-dimensional artist tag. Painted in the first building on the right wall is a "Through-up" artist.
