Album art for "Abraxas" (Santana) and "Bitches Brew" (Miles Davis)
It looks to me like either these people are representing a theme, the same artist did both covers, or some artistic theft has gone on.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
It turns out that the artist for both album covers was Mati Klarwein which explains the style and the reproduction of the people.
But, the question remains, who do they represent (either as a theme or as a people)?
