1972 Munich Olympics Poster


From the Artist Allen Jones, this poster for the 1972 Olympics just about sums up the struggle between the two Dassler brothers.

With Rudi Dassler (symbolised by his Puma brand) pushing against his brother Adi (founder of the eponymous Adidas brand) seeming to be pushing against each other.

The original artwork sold recently at Bonhams for £8,400. A snip I think.

Jones also supplied sculptures for the milk bar set in Stanley Kubrick’s “A Clockwork Orange”

Go to Bonhams for Auction details: *clicky*
