What in the World???

What do we have here?  Is it human?  An animal?  Maybe a monster from another planet?
NO!  It's Emma V.'s incredible interpretation of a bull as inspired by Pablo Picasso's famous painting called "Guernica."  Emma isn't afraid to take on a challenge and I was thrilled when she chose to work from this poster which tells the story of some of the terrible things that happened during a war.  Picasso is famous for showing people and animals in a cubist style.  This style distorts the features and changes the placement of the parts of the face. Check the following images to get a better look at the images in the painting and then make comparisons to Emma's sculpture.  I especially like the way that her sculpture uses newspaper on the cone to represent the textures in Picasso's painting.
"I've got a face only a mother could love."
