About This Project

The proud luchador (wrestler) stands between two beautiful women who accompany him to the wrestling ring. The luchador is covered with tattoos from head to foot. The tattoos represent images of a pre-Columbian culture where wrestling originated. On his chest is embedded the Aztec Calendar. The two women represent good and evil. They are counterparts of the tecnicos, the good wrestlers, and the rudos, the bad wrestlers, who fight each other in the wrestling ring.
