Dream Caused by The Flight of a Bumble Bee Around a Pomegranate One Second Before Waking Up by Salvador Dalí


Often, Dalí's work seems to be influenced by a dream. Dalí (1904-1989) was a painter, writer, film maker, illustrator, jewellery de-signer, and performance artist amongst other things.

When he was born his parents had just lost their first born son. His parents named him after his dead brother and treated him as though he was his dead brother.

This piece is often called, "Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee," but its true Dalí-given name is "Dream Caused by The Flight of a Bumble Bee Around a Pomegranate One Second Before."

I watched a special on artists, architects, scientists and the like who are influenced by or who actually have breakthroughs due to their dreams the other night. Err... the other morning. You know, when I couldn't umm... sleep. LOL

At any rate, it was quite fascinating. Salvador Dali, was of course, one of those mentioned.
