Quote from: pjme on May 08, 2023, 07:16:57 AMIt is a photographical technique datung from the thirties/ Man Ray, then considered quite avant garde. So, in a way it does suit Haba.solarization : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solarization_(photography)

Quote from: Madiel on May 10, 2023, 10:26:50 PMParis? Napoleon?I dunno. It's a nice enough picture even if the meaning currently escapes me. But we've had plenty of examples before on this thread where it turns out there IS a meaning. I honestly question the wisdom of people using this thread for "I don't understand this cover", because to me worst looking artwork will generally mean the actual image is poor quality. And this isn't.
Quote from: Jo498 on May 11, 2023, 12:54:39 AMThe only connection I could see would be Napoleon; cf. the famous picture with him on horseback. Hegel called Bonaparte "Weltgeist zu Pferde", "the world spirit on horseback", roughly a concrete personalization of the spirit that moves world history.
QuoteAnd I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Quote from: Peter Power Pop on May 10, 2023, 11:57:38 PMAs a photo, I think it's a good one.But overall, my main point is: If it has some arcane or cryptic meaning, why create an artwork that might be understood by only a select few, if at all?
Quote from: DavidW on May 11, 2023, 04:35:21 AMI'm frankly surprised that nobody here understands the cover. Because I am an atheist and I got it:Book of Revelations 6:8So no it is a great cover.
Quote from: Florestan on May 11, 2023, 06:35:24 AMActually, it's a subtle reference to Magritte. This is not a horse. The real one is dead. Requiem eternam dona eis domine et lux perpetua luceat eis (and indeed, the horse which is not a horse is in a typically equine resting position and there's shining light behind the horse which is not a horse).
