MunkyKing is proud to present the Alley Cat Black colorway of The Broken Promise, Ausgang’s second designer vinyl release with MunkyKing featuring his trademark psychedelic cat as designed by Dave Bondi. The Broken Promise presents a four-armed bifurcating cat shaking hands with itself while simultaneously flashing the Hindu hand gesture that represents a lion-faced incarnation of Vishnu, the Great Protector Simhamukha. So, although a mutually beneficial promise seems to have been made between the two figures, each one seeks security, aware that the other can still back out of the deal. Simple!
