The Metamorphosis of Narcissus - surrealism by Dali, from 1937 - One of very few Dali works that feature flowers. The handsome young man from Ovid’s tale fixates on his own reflection. Soon he’ll drown in it, and be transformed into the flower that takes his name. The Spanish surrealist has painted a chalky hand patterned on the hero’s stance. It holds an egg (one of Dali’s favorite symbols) that’s cracked for the opening blossom.
