We all have a hero that we admire or idolize. This print is inspired by the phenomenal professional boxer, Muhammad Ali, who has been an inspiration for many of us. In 2011 the original print was released in the ‘Heroes’ collection. Ali was not only known for his boxing skills, but alsof or the values that he stood for: religious freedom and radical justice.
The Camp is here’: the red and white print shows Ali getting ready for his next victory, taping his hands and prepping for his victory. The butterfly and bee in the print respresent Ali’s infamous fighting strategy: ‘Fly like a butterfly, sting like a bee’.
Prepare yourself for the big fight; tape your hands and go for the knock-out! By taping your hands you increase punching power and prevent injury. In the background you see hooks flying around, resembling the power that Ali hits his competitor with.
