long story short:     Joel-Peter Witkin "Gods of Earth and Heaven"


short story long:     after the cancelled concert in Berlin on 22nd October 2015 I had to go to Berlin once again on 9th of December 2015 for the rescedueled concert. Sadly enough it was cancelled again just one daybefore. Train and hotel could not be cancelled. So I had lots of time to hang around, drink some beer and to eat the best burger in Berlin.

Then I decided to go to an art exhibition "The Botticelli Renaissance". And there it was: the cover of the Half moon over Amsterdam LP! I knew that the cover was inspired by Botticelli's "Birth of Venus".

But the piece of art that I saw there was the real thing!

Joel-Peter Witkin, Gods of Earth & Heaven, LA, 1988

Then I remembered that I already saw some more cover artworks by witkin:
