Guernica in 3-D

The creative force behind the following 3-D interpretation of Picasso’s Guernica is Lena Gieseke.

Translated from Spanish from

The route of Lena Gieseke, visual artist and actress who, incidentally, when she was married to Tim Burton, allows us to see the work from the most secret details. The video splits the characters allowing the traveler a glimpse from another perspective, perhaps a sentiment from the sculptural faces. The film culminates with the crowded allegorical indignation of the hand–the broken sword in the center of a flower is born barely visible.

The bull, the mother with her dead son, pigeon, horse, or bulb. These and other characters from the painting will remind all art lovers the consequences of war–both beautiful and dark allegories of war and suffering.

      Isn’t it, Hilary? I am a big Hemingway fan, as you know, and am trying to formulate a paper on Hemingway and Picasso. Guernica will figure prominently!! Cheers, Denise
