    What is this from? I know about the Johnny Depp one, but what about the painting?

    ^ It's a painting by Kirby Sattler.

    I wasn't certain of how related this play may be to Manson at all (unfamiliar with it), so I Googled the title and Gottfried Helnwein directed it, so this is definitely in the cards.

    I just saw a film called "Beyond the Black Rainbow" which featured an image that looks similar to the above. Not to mention an either intentional or at least coincidental reference in the title to Disposable Teens.

    Much like Helwein's Lady Macbeth being appropriated for the 'Crack Roquettes' in the mOBSCENE music video, this aesthetic was utilised numerous times during The Golden Age Of Grotesque.
    Of the art installation Manson hosted to mark the era at VolksbŁhne Berlin he wrote:-

    "I headed for the birthplace of Expressionism, humming The Alabama Song, by Kurt Weill.
    It was time for The Grotesk Burlesk and dozens of mice scurried from the Kinderfeld."
    Marilyn Manson, Trans Amnesia - 21.04.2003


    Also, in the aforementioned mOBSCENE video, young actress Britney was seen in similar dressing, presumably furthering the theme of girls with gauze around their heads in Helnwein's work.


    Apply also, of course, the numerous references Manson has made to head wounds during his career, whether personally or via the medium of media figures like Kennedy (I recall the "wounded head" observation during Holy Wood's tenth chapter).
    "the Serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which
    the LORD god had made
    "
