At center, a stark naked young man (Except for an elaborate head piece) stands with unsheathed swordin his left hand standing atop a pile of condemned men and women, demons, huge lizards, and all manner of creatures of the night.Giant open mouthed bats regard him from above and behind.. But to his right, his outsweeping right arm as well as his discerning lusty eyes salute a vision of lovely naked young women beckoning from an illusion disappearing into intense light. (Jim Hahn 11/10/94)
