Physical description

Dress fabric of printed synthetic jersey. Printed with a design based on the title screen of a pinball machine or gambling machine depicting a nineteenth century gold-prospector on his donkey in the desert with a stream and a cactus, and holding a pan of earth in which a gold nugget has been discovered. A thought-bubble shows three skimpily-clad female pin-up figures above the prospector's head, while the donkey has a smaller thought bubble showing a female donkey. The scene is framed with a rainbow overhead and digital scores from 100 to 900 curving along the right hand side. The design is then mirror-imaged with all text appearing reversed, and arranged in vertical repeating rows.
