DuPenny Strongman Wallpaper


If you thought DuPenny's saucy images of burlesque dancers and 50s housewives objectified women a tad, then they have gone someway to redressing the balace with their Strongman Wallpaper.

With tongue still very firmly in cheek, their latest design offers a very old fashioned portrait of masculinity with the circus strongman represented as the ideal for the gender. The drawings show scantily attired musclemen demontrating their strength by weightlifting, flexing their muscles and even lifting ladies above their heads. Comments such as 'a real He Man' and 'What a Man' complete the design. The wallpaper is available in either black and white or colour and costs £75.
