Sixteen zebra drawings

A series of heads devoted to the same subject by sixteen different zebras

This is a digital manipulation (please follow the link regarding the ethics of employing digital manipulation) of an original drawing of a series of heads devoted to the same subject, by sixteen different zebras at the same time and under the same condition. The experiment was undertaken in 1966, in Leipzeg at the Universität das Zebra, shortly after the shock world cup final win by England. Coincidentally the model for the ‘head drawings’ is thought to be none other than the footballer Geoff Hurst who, whilst on his summer vacation in the City at the time, was mistaken for Trampas from The Virginian (the zebras  favourite TV show of that year).
