Larger than life, hairy and sweaty men in tights, Mario Milano, Killer Karl Kox and King Curtis were household names, loved and
watched by thousands across the suburbs of Australia during the 60s and 70s.

My brothers and I would watch the wrestling with our dad every Sunday morning while our mum prepared the Sunday roast.
Wrestlers of the 1970s were predominantly migrant men imported to establish and promote Australian wrestling.
Along with the inventive stage names came extravagant personalities and colourful dialogue.
The flamboyant choreographed fighting was as creative as the titles given to particular holds and moves.
My dolls are fabric, stitched, stuffed, hand painted and boxed. Their shapes are stylized action figures capturing the
theatrics of wrestling and painted in a manner of vintage sideshow posters.
