''Watch the Throne'' Cover Artist Speaks

Ricardo Tisci, designer for fashion house Givenchy, designed the distinctive album cover for Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne; and he shared his gratitude at being tapped for the high-profile project. He also revealed some of the inspiration behind his work on the cover.

The artwork throughout the album is striking, and Tisci utilized several shapes, religious symbols and animal faces for the artwork.

"I am honored to have been asked to be part of this incredible music moment with such amazing artists," Riccardo Tisci told AllHipHop. "I am impressed by the amount of respect they have for music and art. We share the same way of working : like a family."

Tisci also stated that he wanted the artwork to symbolize the âmasculinity of two of the most iconic rap figures of our time."
