One Of The Frightened Ones, 1981

Gerald Scarfe

This design was one of a series that Scarfe prepared when he was creating the animation to accompany ‘Goodbye Blue Skies’ in The Wall movie.

“It depicts one of The Frightened Ones, the troglodyte figures who live below ground in corrugated-iron air-raid shelters, venturing out only when the all-clear siren sounds.

Having lived through the horrors of the London bombing during WW II, I had clear memories of those times. I had to run for the cellar of our house when the siren sounded, and had the claustrophobic experience of having to put on a gas mask. I was able to draw on this when I wanted to create a vulnerable, naked creature with a gas-mask head to represent the Frightened Ones. This is one of the prototypes for that figure.”
