Dalí painted these monumental panels at a time of intense personal discovery and expression, while the world around him erupted into conflict The work itself is comprised of two separate panels⁠—male and female—and sees the head and bust of each covered by a barren desert landscape and mesmerizing sky. As you would expect, Dalí’s recurring surrealist motifs are peppered throughout: Scattered rocks and indiscernible human figures sit alongside a skeletal tree, the now-famous image of a girl skipping and a burning giraffe. The silhouettes are finished in thick gold and the painting is signed Gala Salvador Dalí, as a tribute to the artist’s wife.
