My final insight into Guernica’s Telesphoros:
In the 1934 unauthenticated Picasso’s Unknown Masterpiece we see the unfurled scroll of Telesphoros.
In the 1937 Guernica we see the parallel lines across the horse. These lines represent writing on the unfurled scroll of Telesphoros. It was unfurled from the spear-scroll shaft.
Said another way: Telesphoros’s scroll in Guernica is represented by the spear-scroll shaft which unfurled reveals parallel lines of writing across most of the horse.
Please notice that the spear shaft (scroll shaft) is midway between the ‘wings’ of Pegasus. These ‘wings’ are also the extended cloak-hidden arms of cloaked Telesphoros holding before the world the parallel written lines of his scroll. And this Picasso-Telesphoros scroll is illustrated by hidden Hitler, Goering, Mussolini and Franco caricatures in the painting.
The above is added proof that the 1934 Picasso’s Unknown Masterpiece is a genuine Picasso work.
