Darth Vader Meets M.C. EscherAugust 4th, 2014
Darth Vader is still one of the greatest villains in the history of motion pictures. This is impressive for a character whose last proper appearance was in a film made in 1983. And no, his reveal at the end of Revenge of the Sith doesn’t count. No David Prowse, no Vader as far as we’re concerned. This time-lapse clip from artist OrangeMonkey92 creates a very special image of the man-machine everyone loves to hate, combining the world of M.C. Escher with the world of Star Wars.
The full image, shown below is inspired by the Escher classic Hand with Reflecting Sphere, but Escher’s reflection has been replaced with the Dark Lord of the Sith, and the sphere has been replaced with the ultimate weapon in the universe, the Death Star.
