Pink Floyd - Animals 1000 Piece Jigsaw

"Animals" is the tenth studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 23 January 1977. Focusing on the social-political conditions of mid-1970s Britain, and loosely based on George Orwell's Animal Farm, it marked a change from the style of their earlier work.

The cover concept was, unusually, designed by Waters. At the time he lived near Clapham Common, and regularly drove past Battersea Power Station, which was by then approaching the end of its useful life. A view of the building was chosen for the cover image, and the band commissioned German company Ballon Fabrik (who had previously constructed Zeppelin airships) and Australian artist Jeffrey Shaw to build a 12-metre (40 ft) porcine balloon (known as Algie). The balloon was inflated with helium and manoeuvred into position on 2 December 1976, with a marksman ready to fire if it escaped. It did escape and managed to fly over Heathrow Airport, resulting in panic and cancelled flights. It was eventually recovered and the cover was completed.
