At the same of One Piece, we learnt that the great Yonko that is Shanks gave up his left hand for what he believed to be the future and the new world. Luffy was saved by Shanks as he was unable to swim. Shanks also lent Luffy the straw hat as a sign for him to return it once he has grown older and is at his level. Definitely a far-fetched gamble at the time, but it’s gotten quite close.
This magnificent artwork of Luffy and Shanks was done by Spartaphyx who has a number of fantastic work based on many different One Piece characters, if you like this work of theirs, check them out. Otherwise be sure to go head and share this to all One Piece, Luffy and Shanks fans.
