Preparing for a fight

These are the Hands

by Mr Jones

Mixed Media Photograph of the Month Contest Entry 
I made a Roman Mosaic (Mixed Media) construction, of a photo of me (left) before fighting (back in the 89). Getting my hands wrapped-up and listening to some last minute advice. The man on my right was my loyal (Muay Thai) trainer, and instructor. Sadly he was killed in a motorbike crash about a couple years after this picture was taken. I get a real tinge of sadness looking at this picture but the image is kinda special to me. In a way I think we would have been more suited to life in Roman times and the (bizarre) concept of risking everything to entertain the masses. Well now cemented in a Roman brick style, for a keep-sake.
