No. 6 – Syd Barret

No. 6 – Syd BarretPink Floyd

Syd Barret was an interesting artist and man for so many reasons, and I my guess is that few people consider his hands one of those reasons. But I do. He had very beautiful hands with fingers much longer than his palms. Also, his knuckles were quite big and his hands wide compared to his more skinny arms. Very masculine hands. I found this beautiful painting of Syd by an artist called Charles Kent (http://artistic-engine.deviantart.com). It shows a man deeply into the depression that made him leave Pink Floyd. I like the contrast of how a man with such a crazy head of hair, such crazy eyes and fragile soul, had so elegant and strong hands.
