Project Guernica

Made by London Junkers and Lizzie Gudkov, this three-dimensional tribute to the famous cubist painting by Picasso is in the Linden Endowment of the Arts sim LEA6.

In 1937 Spanish painter Pablo Picasso created one of the most important icons of the 20th century when he made the Guernica. Painted in black and white, depicting the horrors of war, it is today as solid and modern as it was when it was first shown in the 1937 International Fair in Paris.

The intention of re-creating this masterpiece in Second Life comes from the love for the original mural itself and what it represents.

After a lot of thought and experimenting with external 3d software, a decision was made, this installation would be built only in prims, as an exercise of the possibilities that LEA has given us.

With this piece, we would like to pay homage to Picasso and let visitors learn more from it.

Three tips were given for better viewing, using mouselook, setting draw distance higher, and turning "atmospheric shaders" higher.
