The origin of “Pyramid Head”


Masahiro Ito, the creative mind behind the creature design on Silent Hill 2, has recently shared with us, via twitter, the true origin of the well known Pyramid Head. This emblematic creature was designed based on a picture made by Masahiro Ito himself back in his “art university student days”, 18 years ago.

Here’s the picture:

Ito’s Bubble Head Nurses


Bubble Head

In the past few months, there have been some high detailed sculted statues from some well known creatures from Silent Hill 2. Iam talking, of course, about Pyramid Head and Bubble Head nurses.342306-1

However, after the release of the classic versions of those statues, GECCO is releasing new alternate versions, such as Masahiro Ito’s one, a variant from the conventional Bubble Head with original differences such as ” Crimson thight-high boots” which recreates the classic look of the creature once designed by Ito himself, who wanted to keep her very true to the SH2 Original model face.

“This statue is based on a this box art http://mysilenthill.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/nurse-drawing.jpg
and I asked to be very true to the SH2 original model face and to change its thigh-high boots color to crimson.”
(Masahiro Ito via Twitter)

This is certainly, more than anything else, a piece of art worth getting, specially when it was designed by the creative mind behind Silent Hill most terrific creatures. Here’s a gallery with some captions of the statue

Exclusive Masahiro Ito’s explanation about Bubble Head Nurse true meaning


sh2-nurse-002

Many theories have been given about the meaning of Bubble Head Nurses. However, Masahiro Ito, the creative mind behind the creatures of Silent Hill 2, comes with a true explanation about some details that not everyone might see in the game while fighting these ominous nurses.

Masahiro Ito shared the following statement with us, via twitter:

Ah…yes, it’s representative of suffocated invalid Mary’s swallen head. The nurse in SH2, she shakes her head like struggling to shake off the covered vinyl. But I don’t mind that player will notice this point or not. Because it’s very difficult to notice. 🙂

(when asked if “Also would it be safe to assume from your tweet, that the nurse is representative of the event when James suffocated Mary?)
