  • Analysis of this Gala-Salvador Dalí work

    I find this piece intriguing. What stands out to me is the transparent bodies of the fisherman, the appearance of Dalí's wife holding aomething, the small person-like figurine off in the desert distance, the birds feeding on the bottom left, the pourong of a water pitcher into the drawer, and the mood of the fisherman. I was wondering if anyone had any takes on possible interpretations of these small details or any comments on Dalí and surrealism as a whole.

    I always assumed Gala was holding her bikini top.

    Another symbolic element may be the open drawer, which shows up in some other paintings although I can't explain what it means if anything.
