Nature of the Beast

Nature of the Beast

“It’s not the world in which we live our daily lives, but the unseen, underground world where people live out their fantasies that has power.  Forbidden desires and fantasies are woven into the leather straps, vinyl and bondage imagery on this jar.  Just like the men on the jar preparing to ‘wrestle’, we each wrestle with our human nature.  That’s just the nature of the beast.”  – Virgil Ortiz
