Giger Baphomet's origins date back to 1976 when the original was created. HR Giger visited my studio and suggested creating a belt buckle using the same system I was known for. My work has been featured in magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and many others. Giger kept urging me to make the Baphomet and GigerBat as jewelry as well. In 2014 I dedicated a tribute to HR Giger.
Hansruedi, short HR, Giger was born on February 5, 1940 in Chur. From 1962 he studied architecture and industrial design at the University of Applied Arts in Zurich. The Swiss artist became known worldwide with his "Alien" designs for the eponymous film by Ridley Scott. In 1980 he got the Oscar for visual effects.
In the film sector, he succeeded in addition to the "alien" trilogy about also with his character to "species". Record covers by Giger have been awarded several times, including those for Debbie Harry ("Koo Koo") and Emerson, Lake and Palmer ("Brain Salad Surgery").
