Homenagem às Mulheres da Seca do Bacalhau

Gigantic canvas, with about 500m2, in the street where the memory of the activity of the Drying of the Cod that was done in the last century in Vila do Conde is recovered. In the foreground, the women who worked there in the salting and the drying of the cod, and in the middle the sentence by Valter Hugo Mãe: “This was the sea of women. Here they glorified themselves and here they were shipwrecked.” The artistic conception is by Isabel Lhano, who executed this mural with the Urban Art Center of Vila do Conde: Marco Castiço, Miguel Pipa and his son, Luís Costa.
