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.
