The French artist Gustave Doré might have been dead for over 100 years, but his illustrations are more alive than ever. Vincent Pianina and Lorenzo Papace of Le Petit Écho Malade used papercraft to create an animated short film that guides you through a strange and terrifying world.

Accompanied by the music of Ödland, the video demonstrates the beauty of Doré’s work in a way has never been seen before. The video follows the protagonist through a strange city at night, into the catacombs, and even up a mountain that looks like it belongs on another planet. Words can only do so much to describe this truly magical experience.

The video was created to promote an ongoing exhibition for the artist called “Gustave Doré (1832–1883): Master of Imagination.” It’s currently being held at Musée d’Orsay in Paris until 11th May, 2014.
