POLISH HISTORY MUSEUM
A stereoscopic interpretation of the Jan Matejko painting, “The Battle of Grunwald,” which depicts the greatest battle of the Middle Ages, an event that changed the face of Europe.
The world’s first stereoscopic reconstruction of a painting.
67 characters, each rendered as three-dimensional models, come together to form a clear spatial composition. Depth and perspective appear “within arm’s reach,” inviting the viewer into the canvas to experience it from a new perspective.
The project posed a challenge to animators, who were required to meticulously interpret and recreate the 1878 original and find solutions to problems such as how to depict figures who were partially obscured by those next to them
