This mysterious and full of hidden meaning of the canvas was written by the master of surrealism Salvador Dali in 1982. This is his last creation, dedicated to the unforgettable wife and muse. Gala was his love throughout his life, she gave him inspiration, joy and pain.
Looking at the picture for the first time, you can’t say for sure what exactly is depicted on it. You will see three blurry silhouettes of silver and golden colors, slightly resembling desert burkhan or bizarre folds of fabric. If you defocus your vision and tilt your head to the right, you can distinguish part of the female profile, three times located in the figure in a horizontal position. There is no doubt that this is an image of the famous temptress Gala.
Is this the whole mystery of Dali, left to the descendants unsolved? It is possible. But there are a number of versions to search for the meaning of this canvas. The first version suggests that the picture should be viewed from the bottom up. Based on this, the meaning of the canvas lies in the fact that the author, as it were, removes the female image from us. It is believed that the artist by this technique anticipates the departure of his beloved from life, believing that her soul will go to heaven.
The second version offers to look at the canvas from top to bottom. So Dali designates his stages of life with the muse. The upper image of the female face is the smallest and fuzziest, this is the time of their first years, when he paid attention mainly to her appearance and a cheerful, open character. The second person is on a flat surface, a kind of pedestal. This shows the boundless love and devotion of the artist, who deified the spouse and put her on a step higher than himself. The third image is different in color, it is also as if cut by a gold line. This shows the spouse's awareness of the wife’s inner world, all her desires, charms and sins. Just such a Gala is real, without embellishment and falsehood.
Whatever the hidden meaning of the picture, only Dali himself could accurately reveal it, because he painted a picture of a woman who was for him the ideal and meaning of life.
