Basquiat “St. Joe Louis” Unisex Hoodie - White

He created St. Joe Louis Surrounded by Snakes, depicting a halo over world heavyweight champion Joe Louis, on a painted canvas placed over a shipping pallet. He also makes reference to those around him, the snakes, who took advantage of Joe's wealth and generosity during his lifetime.
