"El Santo" el enmascarado de plata

El Santo! the only real super heroe ever...  iam 32 years old now, but i remember the feeling of just see his pictures on "lucha libre" magazines when i was 5 or 6 years! it was... i dont know how to describe it,  some friends of my mom give me old   luchalibre  mags and i flip pages all day long... remember when he died think it was the first "close encounter" to the death, its not that i cried or not even told my mom but i feel sad when he pass... many years later i had the the chance to see his son "el hijo del santo" when i was like 13 or 14, it was on the "arena Coliseo" on guadalajara, guys you cant imagine the "whole" city  stop! streets blocked traffic everywhere around the arena A MADNESS! when he appear in the street gettin down of a car was like Elvis in his best days arriving to a concert... the crowd.. uff then the fight, crazy crzy stuff, I was 14 15 years ok?! this was my little tribute for El Santo.

If you see it is kinda bad job on the paint, it was intended like that, give him a 60's look, an old statue found on an old antiques store...
