Japanese artist Takumi recreated everything from Mad Max: Fury Road in an ancient Egyptian style, and while the movie has nothing to do with ancient Egypt, it still fits and looks really awesome with this art style.

The top pic is only one part of Takumi’s piece. Here’s the complete one below, where all the elements of the movie are featured. Symbolism, hierarchical proportions, and everyone’s head is shown from a profile view, with their bodies from a frontal view. Just like something from a thousands of years old lost tomb.

Hope the guys at Ancient Aliens won’t see this!

Takumi also shared some black and white drafts. Gotta love those wasteland cars!

“Bullets are the anti seed, plant one in something and it dies” For having such a small part in the film I thought the bullet farmer was awesome!. This... well not sure what to call it, would this be a triptych? I know that’s 3 scenes horizontally, not sure if it works in a vertical exposition like this, well what ever you call this piece of art is awesome! And like the movie itself it centers around Furiosa whose journey is the central driving theme and plot of the story
