Zé-povinho is an excellent creation by Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro. Born in a satire newspaper, "A Lanterna Mágica", in 1875, it is the symbol of modest Portuguese people, who pay everything laughing at everything, naive, sensitive and suspicious. He became first a symbol of the Portuguese working-class people, and eventually into the unofficial personification of Portugal.
