    Description

    1974 Muhammad Ali vs. George Foreman Rumble in the Jungle Tapestry. Made in Zaire to commemorate the fight between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, this colorful tapestry serves as a very unique souvenir of "The Rumble in the Jungle." Measuring a monstrous 37x47," the central images are full length boxing poses of both Foreman and Ali inside large boxing glove outlines,with their names written underneath. Surrounding them are hundreds of small 1" yellow boxing gloves. Around the borders are eight images of the country of Zaire with the words "Le 25 Septembre 74 Kinshasa-Zaire" and a hand holding a torch.

    Some staining appears in the white areas of Ali and Foreman's pictures. Also, due to the rough cut nature on the two sides, it appears this may have been cut down from an original size of 144 x 47," the overall size of the only other known example.
