Sandwina Pop Art
Born Katharina Brumbach in 1884, the pioneering female bodybuilder from Vienna became known as Sandwina after defeating the father of bodybuilding, Eugen Sandow, in a weightlifting challenge.

She successfully lifted 300 pounds above her head in the contest whereas Sandow only managed to raise the weight to his chest after which she gained the title The Great Sandwina (a feminisation of Sandow).

As part of the Barnum & Bailey troupe, one of her trademark moves was to lift her husband above her head using one hand, a feat she continued to perform until almost 60 years old, after which she retired from circus life to open a restaurant and bar, occasionally bending metal bars to entertain patrons.

Contrary to popular opinion of the day, Eugen Sandow encouraged women to exercise for “health and happiness”.
