Here's something that sounds great: a fine art tribute to the heroes (and non-heroes) of professional wrestling, all painted on black velvet. The Iron Sheik tangling with a gas pump? Hacksaw Jim Duggan atop a pile of wrecked AMC Pacers? Giant Haystacks as Elvis Presley? THE SKY COULD VERY WELL BE THE LIMIT!
