Dali created this colorful Renaissance figure by incorporating an engraving of butterflies illustrating a 19th century publication. His frequent depiction of butterflies explores his fascination with the insect world and his intrigue with the process of metamorphosis, such as the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. As a caterpillar transforms into butterfly, Dali’s paranoiac-critical method allowed him to transform the mundane world into a magical one. Measures 8 inches x 10 inches, including matting. Ready to frame.
