The Wiedmann Bible
Willy Wiedmann originally painted The Bible to simplify it in order to assist individuals around the world to experience The Holy Scriptures together. Regardless of their language background or if they are able to read or write.
Over the course of 16 years he painted a total of 3,333 images. He created them in his own style called Polycon Painting Style which he invented in the 60’s. The Wiedmann Bible depicts the complete Old and New Testament. Which makes it one of its kind. So far no other existing version has been known of. Trigger for his life work was an assignment by the Pauluskirche in Zuffenhausen near Stuttgart (Germany). Since the persons in charge were not able to agree upon the murals Willy Wiedmann took it upon himself to start painting some sketches which turned into images, and did end up in a almost 1 mile long Leporello.
Due to missing technology and funds he was never able to publish his works and kept it hidden in his attic for decades. His son accidentally revealed the Wiedmann Bible after his father deceased. Now it can finally fulfil its mission.
The Wiedmann Bible project’s proceeds will be partially donated to charity and partly reinvested in order to make the Wiedmann Bible accessible for everyone worldwide.
