About the image
The Teacher is one of the most important characters in narrative of The Wall.

"I realised from the start my designs had to be memorable – not realistic, but inventive, to make them timeless. Roger and I agreed that all the characters should have a backstory. So I imagined that the Teacher was hen-pecked at home and unleashed his bitterness on the innocent children, whom he put through the mincer."
