Salvador Dali’s Twelve Ten Signs of the Zodiac - 1967
Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marqués de Dalí de Pubol(1904 – 1989), more famously known asSalvador Dalíwas a prominent Spanish surrealist painter born in Figueres, Spain.
Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painting skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. Dalí’s expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.
Dalí attributed his “love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes” to an “Arab lineage”, claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moors.
Dalí was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics
I was very pleased to discover his version of the twelve signs of the zodiac. Unfortunately, Tumblr only allows ten pictures. You can click the source link to see to the two missing signs, Virgo and Libra. The featured signs are Aries, Aquarius, Cancer, Gemini, Capricorn, Leo, Pisces, Sagittarius, Scorpio and Taurus.
I’m obsessed with Colman Pool in West Seattle. There are captions on the photos for a little more info. It’s a salt water pool at the tip of West Seattle, located in a National Park. It is Heaven, you walk through the forest to get there.
