Fan artist retells the whole story of ‘Mad Max’ in Egyptian hieroglyphs
This is it, the only Mad Max fanart we need.
The ancient and the apocalyptic have never collided as beautifully as they do in Japanese artist Takumi Kanehara’s stunning Mad Max: Fury Road fanart—in which the entire story is retold as an Egyptian hieroglyph.
We can’t really prepare you for how awesome this is, so let’s just show you:
The amazing thing about these is not only does the hieroglyph feature actual Egyptian cuneiform, but that even if you’re not a fan of the film, you can still get a sense of the story from this design: the great mythic city with its powerful ruler and citizens desperate for water, the escaping wives, the pursuing warboys, and the savior Furiosa.
Seriously, how cool is this?
Kanehara, a.k.a. TAKUMI, was a host in a nightclub in Hokkaido, Japan, before his artwork won him a new artist award from Sh?nen Jump. He’s known for creating other elaborate fanworks like GhibliLand, and fanart for anime and other films.
Clearly a huge Fury Road fan, he also recently shared fanart he drew of the film’s ensemble cast in the style of One Piece:
