Dan Hernandez - Genesis 2014

In his series, Genesis 2014, Dan Hernandez mixes Super Mario Bros hallmarks with ancient religious frescoes. 2-up, Dan. Hi-fives. These are amazeballs.

I particularly dig this Untitled piece in which Jesus fights Roman soldiers with fire(balls) from heaven (like a fire-flower-powered Mario) through the halls of his inquisition (bottom two stages) and the tortures of Gethsemane (upper-right corner) to the resurrection moment in which (evoking Fra Angelico's Resurrection of Christ and Women at the Tomb) the Son of Man vanquishes his enemies, the Roman soldiers, by the power of his holy light. 

The bridegroom of heaven's solo crusade takes place in Super Mario-style castlerooms connected by floating platforms that he must fight to ascend
