HR Giger’s visual design for the eagerly awaited ALIEN prequel PROMETHEUS features a beautiful mural, designed like Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. The mural shows a Frankenstein-like figure connected to an alien life form. It seems that the film, which explores the origins of humanity, will launch the thesis that man became of an alien God. Therefore, man is an alien to himself.
Another interesting area that PROMETHEUS is apparently addressing: what happens when mankind reaches the level of technological development that allows it to have God-like talents, such as making life?
I can hardly wait for the film’s world premiere in Holland, on May 31st!
