There is a certain style of illustration that appeared in the boys' adventure magazines of the s - in those innocent publications that have been replaced by magazines on punk lifestyles and movie monsters.

Spielberg lights the scene in the strong, basic colors of old pulp magazines. When the swarthy men bend over their discovery, it seems to glow with a light of its own, which bathes their faces in a golden glow.
