The Rainbow Swash comprises large streaks of rainbow colors over a 140-foot tall gas storage tank on Dorchester's waterfront. Commissioned by Boston Gas Co. in 1971 and designed by Corita Kent, the mural has stood the test of time as one of the most well-known landmarks in Massachusetts and a symbol of hope to many of the state's residents who pass it daily on their way to work.
The miniature tank was hand sculpted and molded in solid white urethane plastic. The design has been captured using multiple images of the actual tank in Dorchester, MA and includes recognizable details from Corita's iconic signature to Ho Chi Minh's profile in the blue stripe. To protect the design from chipping and yellowing, the tank is coated with a scratch resistant, UV resistant epoxy resin. Each miniature gas tank comes with a miniature certificate of authenticity that is signed and dated.
