Like an Indiana Jones puzzle, what you see above is just part of the story. It’s part of a brand new poster by artist JC Richard that takes one of the most iconic scenes in Raiders of the Lost Ark and turns it into a painfully beautiful limited edition poster.
That poster, called Well of Souls, will be released by the Bottleneck Gallery and Acme Archives on Wednesday September 9 at noon EST atwww.bottleneckgallery.com. Officially licensed by Lucasfilm, here it is in all its beauty—exclusively here on io9.
It’s a 12 x 36 inch screenprint in a signed and numbered edition of 225, and it’ll cost $50.
Richard made a previous Raiders of the Lost Ark print last year called The Map Room (check it out) to sell at MondoCon, a poster convention in Austin, Texas. There, I spoke to him and he said his idea was to do a nine Indiana Jones posters, three for each movie. It remains to be seen if he’ll hit that lofty goal, but this is the second one. And it’s even more beautiful than the last.
Here are a few more detailed shots of the poster.
