HR Giger's Demon (work 513) and The Big Top



a) On the 14th March 2017, searching through images of Radio Times scans on the the internet. Another aspect of Giger's painting Demon came to the surface, and this would be the 13th-19th February 1982 Radio Times illustration for "The World Circus Championships" with the page headline The Big Top from a time when people watched these things on TV. 


 


b) So still this is confusing since Giger's painting is dated 1978 but catalogued amongst the 1983 paintings.  He most probably altered the mouth of the creature in 1983 with an idea referencing the form of the central trapeze artists
