ALMADA NEGREIROS MURAL

José de Almada Negreiros was commissioned by architect Porfírio Pardal Monteiro to create large murals for two new Lisbon maritime stations: Gare Marítima de Alcântara (mural completed in 1945) and Gare Marítima da Rocha Conde de Óbidos (mural completed in 1948). The multi-paneled murals give insights into art and visual characterization during the New State. Comparing the two projects, as Ellen W. Sapega’s book Consensus and Debate in Salazar’s Portugal discusses, reveals differences in visual interpretation under highly regulated official policy towards the arts.

About Myths and Flora 2007 - The Illyrian Iris in Myths

Perunika (Iris) was named after Perun – Slavic God of Thunder. Legend says that perunika would overgrow in the place that was touched by Perun’s lightning.
Many species of Iris grows in Herzegovina and Dalmatia: Iris illyrica, iris croatica, and Iris pseudopallida. Many antiques writers, such as Teofrast, Nicander and Plinius, mention it.

The root of perunika was used in medicine and in agriculture, but its biggest value was in perfumery. According to the Plinius, the odour of perunika was produced only by Greek cities such as Corint, who led in perfume manufacturing and exported it all over the Mediterranean, and Kizik. Hereof testimony many ceramic pots for perfumes – alabastron and aryballos. In the first fase, the perfume was in liquidity, but Corinthians were started to produce fixed perfume (Greek stymma, something like today’s cream). It was more economical for transport and it was prepared for special pots – pikside.
Many pots for perfumes were found in the field of Narona where, in the IV. century B.C, Greeks founded emporium (port) and established market place in the Neretva, on which boats and ships triere – trireme, were sailing.

Plinius Secundus, in his encyclopedia Naturalis historis writes: “Iris laudatissima in Illyrico, et ibi quoque non in maritimis, sed in silvestribus Drilonis et Naronae”. (Perunika from Illyrica is very praised, not those along the shore, but those in the woods along Drim and Neretva).

The “Os Lusiadas” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Os_Lus%C3%ADadas celebrates the discovery of a sea route to India by the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama (1469–1524).
For the IV Centenary de “Os Lusiades” 1572-1972 Portugal and the former Portuguese colonies issued each one stamp, I am not sure if it are illustrations from the book after the stamp are designed.
Al this stamps except the Portuguese and Guinea issues shows us ships used in the discovery voyages. During the 15th century the Portuguese used “naus” or “caravels” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caravel for their long ocean voyages, and this type of ship is depict on the stamps.

Naus
As glorious as the caravel may have been, its light nature meant that it was susceptible to volatile ocean conditions. As journeys became longer, explorers made greater demands of the ships, so the caravel got a new partner: the nau. This vessel was designed to carry larger amounts of weaponry and cargo while still maintaining reasonable speed and durability. The hull and rig were more sophisticated than previous ships and this allowed for there to be more ease on the ocean. This form was not alien from the caravel, it was an improved version. It was able to sit high in the water; this was a hybrid idea from earlier roundships, which allowed the entire vessel to be roomier. These ships had forward masts and topsails with a crow’s nest, while still mixing in lateen mizzens and square mainsails.[28] There was a demand for a more seaworthy ship that still had the perks of the caravel, so the nau was engineered.
Naus are often mistaken by carraks in English literature, a common military ship in Britain during the early fifteenth century. Carracks were smaller ships neither suitable for high seas nor freight.
