Indiana Jones’ Last Crusade Rubbing Poster

Indiana Jones Grail Tablet Rubbing Last Crusade 2012 Dave Delisle

The latest addition to my geeky poster store continues the trend of art seen in films and television. This one is a facsimile of the composite charcoal rubbing created by Indiana Jones in the Last Crusade film (remember when that film capped a trilogy perfectly?).

This one is about 90% accurate. Some characters at the top left needed guesswork. You’ll have to fold it, crumple it up, and add some tears at the edge to make it look completely authentic.

When I illustrated the letters I saw some actual wording used in the film – it’s not just a bunch of random text. References to a crescent moon, life eternal, and Alexandretta all present and accounted for. Several other words could be loosely interpreted as well.

  1. 17 days seems an appropriate retirement length! Happy you are back at your geekery, sir, esp once it’s cold enough for you to start thinking ‘hockey’ again!
