Bald Archie

Created in 2004 the Bald Archie is a spoof on the Archibald Prize for Portraiture. Allegedly judged by Maude, a Cocktoo, this year's Bald Archie went to James Brennan. A Newcastle railway worker, James took home AUD $5,000 prize money for his painting. The painting shows Princess Mary (a fellow Tasmanian) and her hubby, Crown Prince Frederik, of Denmark, in their underwear. The couple’s children and pet Tasmanian devil's are also depicted.
