Guertena...? Is it really the man himself? I heard Guertena didn't leave any self-portraits...

Guertena is one of Guertena's paintings located in the Cyan Area of the Dungeon in the game Ib. It depicts Guertena in the process of painting Mary. The image is surrounded by a black inner frame and a yellow outer frame. Guertena's entire appearance remains unknown, as the painting only portrays the left part of his torso and his left arm.


The painting can be found center-north of the main room of the Cyan Area.

The painting is divided into twelve pieces. The main objective of the Cyan Area is to find these pieces, and once they're united, the painting becomes a portal into the Black Area, where the Final Stage and Black Key are located.

In the True Guertena Exhibit, Guertena is center-north of the Cyan Room.
