Pink Floyds Inflatable Pig Battersea Power Station Featured April 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.

Bahai temple and gardens, Haifa, Israel Featured April Print

Bahai temple and gardens, Haifa, Israel

BahA?'A? World Centre in Haifa, the spiritual and administrative centre of the BahA?'A? Faith. The Terraces of the BahA?'A? Faith, or Hanging Gardens of Haifa. In the foreground, the Baha'i Eagle. In the center, the golden-domed Shrine of the BA?b (Ali Muhammad Shirazi), the Prophet of the BahA?'i Faith. The terraces represent the first 18 disciples of the BA?b with 9 concentric circles from each side providing the main geometry of the 18 terraces conceived as generated from the Shrine of the BA?b. The 18 terraces plus the one terrace of the Shrine make 19 terraces, a significant number within both the BahA?'A? and BA?bA? religions. A Unesco World Heritage site. Architect: Fariborz Sahba from Iran
