This is creepy...
Picasso’s anti-war masterpiece Guernica seems to have been slightly moved to the left. The staff of Museo Reina Sofia, Guernica’s home for over two decades, claims to have no knowledge of the piece being moved. As if things couldn't get any spookier, we learned from Museo Reina Sofia that Guernica is protected by three layers of bomb and knife proof glass. Essentially what this means is that unless a Museo Reina Sofia staffer went rogue and managed to bypass the intense layers of knife proof security without making any noise, the painting was moved by some sort of spooky spirit or ghost.
“I know my staff very well. The likelihood of one of these idiots putting everything at risk just to move the piece a mere two inches seems very low. There would be nothing to gain from doing that. It’s just confusing. That’s why I believe its some sort of ghost or spirit from the afterlife,” said Manuel Borja-Villel, director of Museo Reina Sofia.
When asked if the spirit was the ghost of Picasso himself, Borja-Villel offered the following:
“We just don't know at this point. The thing about Guernica is that it’s such an elaborate piece. It covers every topic from war, to peace, to love, to death and then back to war. So really, it could be any kind of ghost; a war ghost, a death ghost, a love ghost, or even just a general art ghost.”
After conscious deliberation, Borja-Villel has decided to keep the museum open, adhering to scheduled hours of operation. He expects to see a much larger draw of patrons, as ghost fans and ghost theorists from all over the world have started to flock to Spain for a first hand viewing of whatever this spirit may be.
At press time, Off The Horn has not acquired any photos of anything resembling anything close to what might be a ghost. Be sure to stay tuned for any updates.
