Anselm Kiefers Glaube hoffnung liebe measures 2800 x 3800 x 750cm and is a mixed media piece which consists of synthetic polymer paint shellac on photodocument paper on canvas linen with lead It was started in 1984 and completed in 1986 The background is impasto the emulsion paint has been built up to create a texture and the brush strokes are clearly visible The focal point of the piece is the propeller which is made of lead and has been welded together The reason behind it being made of lead is that lead is a material that is too heavy for anything to take off in This shows that Kiefer doesnt like the idea of war and bombings and it is even more obvious to us because on each of the three blades of the propeller faith hope and love have been engraved Three is a number that is seen quite a bit with three lead rocks attached to the piece The number three is quite significant because of the holy trinity showing us that Kiefer believes in god This together with the lead propeller shows us that Kiefer is certainly anti-war Another piece by Anselm Kiefer Das Wulund-Lied Mit Flugel was done in 1982 with oil emulsion straw photo on projection paper mounted on canvas with lead wing The wing represents something that doesnt work anymore because like the propeller its made of lead This however is a little different to the propeller because it isnt from a machine its from some sort of creature most likely an angel The reason why its lead could be because he thinks that people have lost faith in god and so the angelgodfaith doesnt work anymore This again is referring to the war and his dislike for it The background again is built up with paint However this time it is a collage with straw The straw adds a lot of texture to the piece on
