Pink Floyds Inflatable Pig Battersea Power Station Featured Heritage Images Print

Pink Floyds Inflatable Pig Battersea Power Station

A 40-foot long inflatable pig suspended between two of the chimneys at Battersea Power Station, London, during a photoshoot for the cover of Pink Floyd's album 'Animals', 6th November 1976. Whether it was an epic publicity stunt or a genuine mishap remains a topic of debate in some circles. Either way, the cover shoot for 1977's Animals became one of Pink Floyd's signature moments.
Roger Waters and artist Aubrey Powell, co-founder of the art group Hipgnosis, came up with the concept of an inflatable pig floating over Britain's iconic Battersea Power Station. But things didn't go as planned at the December 1976 photo shoot, as the 40-foot balloon broke from its moorings on one of Battersea's southern chimneys, rising directly into the path of planes landing at Heathrow Airport. All flights were grounded, and Powell was arrested, even as police helicopters and the Royal Air Force arrived to chase the pig. It eventually fell to the ground miles way in Kent.

Parable Of The Talents Featured Heritage Images Print

Parable Of The Talents

An engraved depiction of The parable of the talents from the New Testament Book of Matthew 25:14-30, circa 1700. The parable tells of three servants, each entrusted with varying sums of money (the talents), who either put their money to work, or in the case of the third, lazy servant, simply bury it for safe keeping. The scroll at the top of the image is a dedication to the sponsor of the illustration, William Penn (1644 - 1718). (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
