Pop Culture Quiz

  • The scenery portrayed was inspired by the beginning of the music video to the song "911" by Lady Gaga. Maybe that was a bit to obscure this time.

    My next quiz entry is my re-interpretation of a piece of naive art. Janina was so kind to provide her otherwise discharged monkey. Let's see, if someone can name the painter of the original.

  • Obviously, It's Frida Kahlo. But I dunno the title of the painting.


    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
    Deine zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!

  • Very good, Eggy! I wasn't sure, if I came close enough.

    The original is called "Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird". But in my version there is no hummingbird at all and it's generally quite a free interpretation to begin with, so the exact title doesn't matter that much.

  • Beautiful picture - but now I know what you meant with the bad looking monkey. It seems like it was even more resized when I uploaded it to the forum.

  • Maybe at some point you could draw a new drumless monkey for the animal section? From Pippi Longstocking to Night at the Museum, monkeys occur more often than one would think at first glance.
