" A Small Polo Obsession…" Sculpture and art by Joseph Vaughan
Here artist Joseph Vaughan imagines another collectable piece of Polo Ralph Lauren which currently has not been available. This Polo Sport surfboard takes its graphics inspiration from a highly prized early Polo Sport logo known by collectors as the ‘Police Badge’ due to its shield shape resembling those worn or carried by police.
On the underside the red outline motif is continued along the outer edge of the board and fins and is completed with a free hand ‘Polo Sport 67’ in script type lettering to echo the top and the overall surfing theme.
One of the photos shows the board alongside an earlier figurine depicting music artist and well known collector ‘Rack-Lo’.
