The metal statues were real and made especially for this cover. They weighed a ton. They were taken by flat-bed truck to a field near Cambridge, the Floyds home town, close to Ely Cathedral, on the edge of the Fens.

The sculptures present the idea of two heads in profile, facing or talking to each other, making up a third face, facing you. The metal heads were devised by Keith Breeden and built by John Robertson, to the height of a double-decker bus, the size of a small house, like the Aku Aku totems on Easter Island. Storm Thorgerson notes, The single eyes of the two faces looking at each other become the two eyes of a single face looking at you, the viewer. It was intended that the viewer should not see both at the same time. One saw the single face or the two profiles. If one saw both it was alternating, like an optical illusion, which was even better because it meant that the viewer was interacting, or communicating, with the image directly, viscerally. (from Mind Over Matter- The Images Of Pink Floyd). The third or facing head, is implied not defined, more ghostly than real, referring to Roger and Syd, the departed ghosts of Pink Floyd, a theme of the album.
