Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea which at Twenty Meters becomes a Portrait of Abraham Lincoln
In sacred:space using postcards that 'chose us' we were encouraged to meditate for some time on a single image.
This is the picture that chose me ! I found it on an internet site of Salvador Dali paintings and another where there is a review of this particular image.
It is a cubist picture of Dali's wife Gala looking out at mediterranean made of blocks or 'pixels'. I was initially distracted by both the nude and the cross Only when the picture was 'out of focus' by squinting did I 'see' the other picture. Through not seeing the detail, but looking from afar. I discovered I needed to remove my specs to see from another perspective. There is a moral in there somewhere.
