Travis Louie, Handsome Johnny Superstar, acrylic on board, 14 x 9" (hexagonal)

Handsome Johnny Superstar was a top circus performer in the 1890s. He held the record for most axes ever juggled and closed his act by keeping 9 long handled axes in the air for almost 2 minutes. He was a very attractive lion and many patrons swooned when he walked into the center ring.
