Salvador Dali

I really like Dali's paintings.  What does he mean to say in this picture below?  It's fascinating.  It's called the Enigma of the Rose/Death.  Why is there a hole in the tree?  What's behind the tree?

I saw one of his paintings, Christ of St. John of the Cross in the Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow a few years ago.

Today is the anniversary of Dali's death.  He died in 1989 at the age of 84.


  1. Thanks Orla, I am a Dali lover. I too have seen the Christ of St. John of the Cross at Kelvingrove, it is a hugely impressive, resonant painting. His home coastline, I believe.

  2. Yes you're right Titus, it is a special piece.
