Dali - The Enigma of Desire

Identifier

004610

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

A Dictionary of Symbols – J E Cirlot
In many symbolist pictures, for example, in Gustave Moreau's Orpheus, the background landscape includes perforated rocks which are evidently invested with a transcendental significance.  It is also worth recalling Salvidor Dali's frequent practise, amounting almost to an obsession, of painting holes – regular in shape, like windows – in the backs of some of his figures.
