Dali's 'Decalcomania' (1936) represents a female-esque figure with a head of roses set against a dark ground. It is surrounded by a decorative archway made of bones painted in gold, which is on a separate support in its original form and was probably achieved through drawing rather than decalcomania to provide a visual frame for the central figure. In some of these bone-like shapes, which appear in the arch, Dali has added little faces after the fact transforming them into skulls. Dali made this and other decalcomanias in 1936, the same year the other Surrealists demonstrated such enthusiasm for this new technique.
This stylish tank top of 'Decalcomania' is 65% polyester and 35% cotton, and is printed on a 'burn out' style shirt which makes the material thin and lacy.
