Digital artist Ferdi Rizkiyanto has created a breathtaking work of art entitled ‘Uncharted’ that show wax figures emerging from a melting candle struggling against their fate.

As humans we tend to see figures and faces in almost everything, from clouds, to outlets and even melted candle wax. Ferdi Rizkiyanto has taken our ability to anthropomorphize everyday objects to the next level with ‘Uncharted.’ This digital rendering shows two wax figures scrambling to climb the side of the candle, while at the bottom we see a cadre people pushing against the melting wax trying in vain to keep the candle from losing its form.

Even though it’s just a candle, Ferdi Rizkiyanto’s detail captures so much emotion that it becomes easy to feel for these wax figures.
