Lions Roar : November 2017
Left: The original bromance (from top): Fezzik (Andre the Giant), Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), and Vizzini (Wallace Shawn) in The Princess Bride. BEY FEZZIK. When Andre the Giant’s stenciled face began appearing everywhere in American cities in the 1990s, immortalized against brick and concrete in artist Shepard Fairey’s series of “OBEY” stickers, posters, and graffiti, his image suddenly became Americana. Before his death in 1993, and before the generational rise of this movie, Andre the Giant was best known as an angry, hulking, powerful professional wrestler. But I was way more interested in his character from The Princess Bride, Fezzik. I used to imagine that the face depicted on Fairey’s authori- tarian stencils was not the 7-foot, 4-inch, 520-pound World Wrestling Federation icon. Instead, these drawings were asking me to “OBEY” Fezzik. If you visualized Fezzik, then Fairey’s work was no longer a clever send-up of an Orwellian theme. “OBEY” was, instead, a gentle reminder, The Dharma of the Princess Bride In The Princess Bride, outcasts and loners find true friendship. Drawing on the classic film, ETHAN NICHTERN offers Buddhist teachings on how to make friends with yourself and others. ETHAN NICHTERN is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist community and founder of the Interdependence Project. This article is excerpted from his new book, The Dharma of the Princess Bride, published by North Point Press. Shepard Fairey’s treatment of Andre the Giant was seen all over American cities in the 1990s. PHOTO:AFARCHIVE/ALAMYSTOCKPHOTOPHOTO(RIGHT):360B/ALAMYSTOCKPHOTO O LION’S ROAR | NOVEMBER 2017 65
