Ziggy Stardust (1972-73) - The Blind Prophet (2015-16)
Ziggy Stardust - The most known character created by David Bowie for the 1972 concept album: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The character is an alien sent to earth, to bring a positive message of hope in the last five years of its existence. To complete the look of the intergalactic messenger, an “astral sphere” — which represents the celestial spheres in a variety of religious and mystery traditions — is displayed on his forehead. David Bowie played as the character on the tour of the same name, and retired on stage in July 1973.
The Blind Prophet - The Blind Prophet is a character that appears in the music videos for "Blackstar" and "Lazarus" from the Blackstar album. He wears a white blindfold with black buttons over it for eyes. It could be related to fear. Or that being blind and only seeing darkness could relate to death. He has grey pointy hair and black clothes. He has been described as being anxious, introverted, and tormented.
Ancient Inspiration - Janus the two-faced God from Roman mythology, As a god of change, and the transition from past to present to future, Janus is sometimes considered a deity of time. Double-Headed sculptures of Janus inspired this sculpture design, one head facing the past, and one facing the future.
