Mambo 'crucifixion' shirt withdrawn from Big W after dressing down
MORE than 20 years after it first appeared, a classic Mambo design has proved too controversial to sell on a department store T-shirt.
Big W has removed 200 shirts depicting the crucifixion of a mouse from 30 of its stores following a complaint. The design was created by the Australian artist Richard Allen in 1986.
The move comes just weeks after the discount department store added Mambo designs to its clothing range, which was seen as an attempt by the label to widen its sales base
