The project Giger's most interested in filming is his own story, THE MYSTERY OF
SAN GOTTARDO, which Gi- ger described as a unique love story. "It is about a
man and his love for a freak of nature, Arm- beinda, which is really a sentient limb
combining an arm and a leg. It is the further development of a recurring image in
my work over the last 30 years." The concept stems from a 1963 creation called "
The Beggar," Giger's very first sketch, featuring a leg and an arm holding a hat.

A more recent commentary on the past occurs in Giger's 1998 graphic novel The
Mystery of San Gottardo. This story concerns a military project gone wrong, in
which the arms and legs of humans are "painlessly" removed, leaving the torso
virtually helpless in a wheelchair, while each arm is conjoined to a leg, upper arm
to upper thigh, to form two separate beings, controlled at the arm-leg juncture by
advanced military nanotechnologies. These Biomechanoids move about by

It is now on display in my museum, waiting to be returned to service in The
Mystery of San Gottardo, my own film idea which I hope to see produced. I didn't
want to have my name on the last few films I've worked on, because, frankly, they
were so bad. I think my movie work became more difficult when I stopped doing
airbrushed artwork; now I draw. If you create a really good, finished painting with
an airbrush, everything is in it, meaning film-makers can't change very much. But
