Josephine Myrtle Corbin (May 12, 1868 – May 6, 1928) was an American sideshow performer born as a dipygus. This referred to the fact that she had two separate pelvises side by side from the waist down, as a result of her body axis splitting as it developed. Each of her smaller inner legs was paired with one of her outer legs. She was said to be able to move her inner legs, but they were too weak for walking.

Screen printed by hand on cotton canvas.

The patch is approximately 11x12 inches depending on how the fabric is cut.We do not make custom sizes, the measurements shown are the only ones available.

About this item:
If you wash it, we suggest to use cold water and hang to dry but drying machines will not affect the print! The item will be folded for mailing purposes, so just run an iron over the back when it arrives to flatten it before adding it to your favorite jacket!
