“Guernica” is the title of the painting by Pablo Picasso, depicting the Nazi bombing of Guernica, Spain, in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War, in which roughly 1600 people were killed.

At first, I felt that 3D exploration defeated the whole purpose of a cubist painting, however, after watching it again, I’ve changed my mind. I feel it provides an opportunity to view the painting from a unique perspective, revealing aspects that would normally stay hidden. If you watch it and don’t like the idea of cubism in 3D, then I suggest you check out some cubist sculpture.
