Pink Floyd's The Wall is a masterpiece of musical history. The songs on the double album from 1979 tell the story of the fictious rock star Pink. A harsh childhood, broken marriage and the rise to stardom lead to him isolating himself from reality and he locks himself into his own warped reality. The metaphorical Wall isolates Pink.
About this creation
In Pink's most crazed moment, the adoration of his fans lead him to the delusion of being a leader of people who will do any- and everything for him; a crazy facist dictator-like person. The symbol of his empire are crossed hammers, his followers he sees as marching hammers. In the end, Pink breaks down, comes to reason and he breaks down the wall around him.
Here are the building instructions for the hammerhead. It's a real bummer I have only one of the bricks of picture 10 in dark grey, but another brick just would not do!
The shaft you can make in multiple ways to get the eight-sided effect. Here is an example of how I made one of the hammers.
By Pink Floyd is an album, but also a movie. It stars Bob Geldof as Pink. See it, listen to it, it is awesome!
A beautifully done construction. The hammers look so real. The inclusion of the instructions is quite unique. I'm finding more and more from the younger generation who appreciate music from my past. Besides Pink Floyd, I liked the Who, Led Zepplin, and Moody Blues.
Very clever! Love that you included instructions. The movie is a great resource for some wonderful, profound, and strange imagery. I haven't seen it in about 20 years, think I'll check it out again. Great idea!
