The Mechanical Hand artwork

What do you see when you look at the album artwork?

What songs do you see?

What does the bird represent?

Does the bird represent a scientist with a shirt on that has girls in little clothing and the effect it has on society? Because that's the only metal I listen to now.

I see Birdo, Octopus on Fire, and Parental Advisory Explicit Content. Must be a secret song.

I think the bird represents change as it gives birth to strange creatures from its back much like a Gremlin. It's also eating an egg, which may be symbolic of the older generation eating the younger generation before they have time to rise up and destroy the old ways of life. Also, there seems to be a happy little blue fella that may represent hope.

But really, it could mean any number of things. It might not "mean" anything at all. Any hypotheses are probably incorrect and insulting to the original artist. Ponycore needs to do the album art for the next HtheB, if such a thing happens.

Re: The Mechanical Hand artwork

I like your response. Is the bird a soaring quail, a vulture, or both?

I'm not sure, but it should be noted that whatever type of bird it is, it has a mechanical hand.
