About Salvador Dali Triptych Skateboards – Musart on Decks – Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee (1944)
Part of Musart Boutique’s original collection Musart on Decks comes this exclusive limited edition of 100 Salvador Dali Skateboard Triptych features his iconic work Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a Second before Wakening Up made in 1944. This iconic work by the Spaniard Surrealist artist is found at the National Museum of Thyssen-Bornemisza. This explicit and long title provides a perfect description of the original painting (oil and collage on canvas). The sleeping figure of Gala, Dalí’s wife, and muse floats above a rock in a tranquil marine landscape. Beside her naked body, two drops of water, a pomegranate, and bee are also airborne. Gala’s dream, prompted by the buzzing of the bee, appears in the upper part of the canvas; there, from an exploding pomegranate shoots out a fish, from whose mouth two ferocious tigers emerge together with a bayonet which, one second later, will wake Gala from her restful sleep. Although by 1944 Dalí was already living in America and devoting little time to painting, this canvas marks a return to his ‘paranoiac-critical method.’ His view—based on Freudian theories—that images were open to multiple interpretations made him one of the leading members of the Surrealist group.
