A number of confectioners in Spain successfully created an edible version of Pablo Picasso’s 1937 painting Guernica.

According to news agency United Press International, they used about 1,102 pounds of chocolate.

Chocolatiers and pastry chefs hailing from Basque created the 24.6-foot-by-11.4-foot version of the painting.

It aims to commemorate the 85th anniversary of the April 26, 1937 bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.

The painting depicts people and animals killed and injured during the bombing by Francisco Franco’s Nationalist faction.

A temperature-controlled room at the Reina Sofia art museum in Madrid houses the chocolate version of Guernica.

Meanwhile, German police officers recovered a lost painting worth more than $300,000 from a recycling dumpster near an airport.

According to various news reports, French surrealist Yves Tanguy made the expensive painting.

An unidentified businessman accidentally left it behind at a check-in counter as he boarded a flight to Tel Aviv.

He immediately contacted the Duesseldorf police about the item as soon as he realized that it was missing.

Police spokesman Andre Hartwig said they had difficulties finding the painting at first with limited information.
