The audiovisual production entitled Taüll 1123, a reference to the name of the church and the year in which it was consecrated, comprises three parts. The first shows the paintings on the church’s walls, the second the paintings kept in the MNAC, and the third the recreation of the paintings in the church’s central apse.
The starting point for our final recreation of the wall painting was the remains of the original, as they themselves provide a wealth of information, from small details to sizeable fragments of drapery, friezes and figures. We digitally produced the representation of the painting following the Romanesque pictorial technique, applying base colours, shadows, and black and white profiles.
With a view to the mapping achieving its goal and accurately portraying the painting as it would have looked in 1123, in its place of origin, we digitally restored its remains, recreated the parts that have been lost, and repainted the existing parts for the purpose of the audiovisual production’s animation. Once we had digitally reproduced all the painting’s elements, we matched their colours and tones with those of the original.
