Lot 2026: 1974 Ali-Foreman Prayer Shawl from Zaire
Prayer shawl was created during the promotion of this most important heavyweight battle and was likely given to prominent women of Zaire. Marvelous “African” graphics with pattern of tiny boxing gloves in gold. In the center are the two figures of the mighty combatants, Ali & Foreman inside duo boxing gloves. Incredibly rare, this is the first we have seen. One of these shawls is prominently seen in the compelling award-winning documentary When We Were Kings (1996). Sophisticated cross-cultural piece that crosses many areas of interest. NRMT. 72x44”.
