Pablo Picasso in 3-D

This painting spoke to me in a way that is rare, like getting ones attention, and quietly being aware of all of the tragedy and pain that can exist because of war. When you put war in perspective you see that nobody wins, especially after the first life is lost. It is so necessary that I present it to you given the state of the world today.
To see Pablo Picasso’s Guernica in 3-D is a rare treat.
The Guernica is perhaps Pablo Picasso’s most famous painting. The work of art depicts the Nazi German Luftwaffe bombing of Guernica, Spain on April 26 1937 during the Spanish Civil War. Picasso, who was very affected by the bombing which killed several hundred people, painted Guernica at the behest of the Spanish government which commissioned him to paint a large mural for the Paris International Exposition in 1937. On completion, Guernica was displayed around the world becoming famous and widely acclaimed. This tour brought the Spanish civil war to the world’s attention.
The Guernica epitomizes the tragedies of war and the suffering armed conflicts inflict upon individuals. This monumental work has, through the years, become a perpetual embodiment of peace and a desperate cry against war.

"In such a world of conflict, a world of victims and executioners, it is the job of thinking people, not to be on the side of the executioners."---Albert Camus
