Nirvana’s infamous “Two Virgins” Promo tee. Purchased at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1990 directly from bassist and Nirvana founding member, Krist Novoselic. The NFT features the iconic imagery with Sub Pop’s Co- Founders Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman superimposed on the bodies of John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
The “Two Virgins” photoshoot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz served as the original source for the now infamous parody tee by the band. Artistry and a healthy dose of meta-level absurdity have taken Nirvana, and their earliest merchandise to skyrocket in value. This NFTee comes full circle as a derivative work whose origins stemmed from the recreation of an iconic image, and has taken us to yet another manifestation of an image whose meaning and iconography change as Nirvana’s influence continues to grow.
