The Jaws poster is one of the most iconic pieces of movie art of all time. Created by Roger Kastel, the image of features Jaws headed to the surface in search for a meal. Of course, we all know that that meal was a young woman. Not only was the shark featured on the poster for Steven Spielberg’s film, but also the novel written by Peter Benchley as well.


This week, Daily Mail shared an image of a real shark that mimics the poster perfectly, minus the girl. Taken by British filmmaker and cage diver Euan Rannachan, the image was captured off the coast of Mexico.


The shark in my image is a female and her name is Squirrel. We’d been with her for a while. We have these people on the boat called shark wranglers and they throw these two-foot chunks of tuna to get the shark close to the surface,” Rannachan told the site, explaining how the image of the seventeen-foot shark was captured. He went on to say: ‘A guy named Crazy Luis stood up on the boat to bring the shark to us when we sit on the surface in the shark cage.”


The beauty and ferocity of nature never fail to impress.
