Comfortably Numb, 1980

Gerald Scarfe

Gerald Scarfe’s unique interpretation of ‘Comfortably Numb’- one of the key songs in The Wall. It represents a nightmare shared by both Scarfe and Waters which triggered the creation of this macabre image and inspired the visual accompaniment to the song in both the stage show and the film of The Wall.

“Roger and I discovered we had the same dream, or nightmare, as children. We dreamed that our hands grew larger and thicker and numb. Hence the lyric ‘My hand felt just like two balloons’”.

  Originally created as a treatment for a scene in the film in which Pinks hands literally swelled up, trapping him in a car, the concept was altered to show his entire body transforming.
