Summary

Blake was commissioned by Dodo Designs to produce an enamel plaque that was issued in an edition of 10,000 and sold for £1. Due to a fault in the enamelling process the work was eventually screenprinted onto tin. Babe Rainbow was a fictional lady wrestler, the daughter of Doktor K Tortur (another member of the Blake wresting team). On the reverse of the work is printed her biography
