Heath, Eric Walmsley 1923- :Kiwi wins Melbourne Cup. Kiwi wins New York Marathon. Kiwi wins Miss Universe. 3 November, 1983

Reference Number: E-536-q-067-1

The scene shows an Australian standing on a silhouette of a map of Australia and clutching the America's Cup; he looks desperate and fearful and has sweat pouring off his face. Standing on a silhouette map of New Zealand is a New Zealander who holds a toy yacht with a kiwi on its sail behind his back; he is eying the cup covetously and has a wicked grin on his face. Refers to the fact that in 1983 Australia won the cup from the Americans in the 25th challenge and New Zealand was beginning to look like a serious threat because of her strong yachting tradition and series of successes.
