Photograph of Zen

Sometimes a picture comes your way across the vast span of the internet that is so wonderful, so moving, so insanely perfect and thrilling you just have to put it up on your desk top and look at it for awhile.  Examine it.  Soak it all in.  Revel in the composition, the colors, the subject and format.   Such a picture deserves an introspective spirit and effort to relish the story of it's inception, it's journey and it's future.  It covers all the senses, touching the mind and the soul at the same time.  Yes it's a rare zen moment frozen in time..... This, is just such a picture.
This masterpiece is an OMG pic from the's oddly insane.  Mohammed Ali, Hulk Hogan, Cyndi Lauper, Liber-freakin-ace and some chick named Wendy Richter.  It's 1980's 'camp' at it's very best in my view.  
According to a friend of mine, It's a promo shot from an early Wrestlemania. Hulk Hogan was champ, Richter was women's champ, Lauper was involved (Capt Lou Albano was dad in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun vid) and may have been managing a wrestler at the time, and Ali and Liberace both performed at the event.
Does it get any better than this???  Lib looks halfway butch w/that pose (fur and diamond rings notwithstanding).
I LOVE it!
