He also appears on mola patchwork pieces in Panama, but naturally I can't find a picture for you when I want one!

Considering the Phantom is a sort of paternalistic colonialist figure, appropriating him in this way seems... appropriate.

This reminded me of an old friend who sadly could and did die, unexpectedly. The Phantom was one of his favorites (along with his dog, Devil), and he would have loved these. Thanks for posting this. It's always good to be reminded of lost friends.
