CARMEN MIRANDA, REVISITED


Does anyone out there (besides me) remember Carmen Miranda? For those of you too young, she was a South American (I think) dancer who always had a huge headpiece of fruit. Pineapples, bananas, oranges, etc. towering over her head as she did a sort of koochy, koochy type dance in a very koochy, koochy type costume. Sort of a Las Vegas showgirl with a Latin twist. Get the picture?

Anyway, this is a 9x12 on masonite.





includes S&H in cont. US
