Australian Jesus Jigsaw Puzzle x Reg Mombassa
Disclaimer: Please note this product is priced in AUD currency although the overall website currency states USD
Third Drawer Down Studio in collaboration with iconic Australian artist Reg Mombassa are thrilled to present their BBQ with Australian Jesus 1000 piece Jigsaw Puzzle. A collectible piece to enjoy over and over again or frame once complete. Also an Australia Day cover for the SMH in 2008, it features that great Australian social institution -the backyard barbecue. The barbecue is in a rural area and has the Harbour Bridge and an Opera House clad in rusty corrugated iron and fibrolite. Australian Jesus is mouthing silent words from a blank bible and is accompanied by a one-eyed space dog and a large salivating blowfly perched on a Weber barbecue.
