F*** Buttons | Gérôme

Song: Fuck Buttons - "Brainfreeze" (2013)

Art: Jean-Léon Gérôme - "Pollice Verso" (1817)



This painting is named after the ominous hand gesture the Roman attendees of a gladiator event gave to signify a loser’s fate. Ridley Scott claims that it was this painting that sold him on the idea of a gladiator movie. Staring at this painting for the entirety of this brooding Fuck Buttons song is an experience every bit as rousing as watching The Gladiator.
