Look Closely: Bowie’s Space Oddity

On the back cover of an album Bowie released in 1969 (eventually called Space Oddity) shows a disturbing image of a clown and his elderly mum. Eleven years later he would release a video to the classic song Ashes to Ashes showing, yes, a clown and his elderly mum walking along a beach. Nice self-referential work Dave!
