The great surrealist of the 20th century, Salvador Dali, left behind many questions, most of which are expressed in his paintings. His works cannot be appreciated or understood unambiguously, everyone sees something different in them, comes to a special understanding of the surrealist perception by the artist of the world around him.
In front of the viewer appears the roof of a tall tower. The sun illuminates the roof, on which there is a meeting of two lovers. They are in unambiguous poses.
The coziness and enjoyment of the couple is broken by someone else, whose body casts a huge shadow on the roof of the tower. The observer is looking at them with interest.
Next to the roof is the head of a lion, which in the symbolism of Dali is the embodiment of crazy passion, boundless and all-consuming.
The blue ball is a symbol of sincerity, bright feelings, love, happiness. He is in the foreground, attracting the viewer in the first place, switching his attention to pairs of lovers, as if asking to leave them alone.
But a secret observer personifies public condemnation, censure of a couple in love, depriving them of the opportunity to enjoy, do what they want, calling for compliance with the expectations of society. The observer forces them to follow the rules adopted in this society. But meanwhile, the observer himself experiences a studio in front of lovers, but has the obligation to condemn them.
The man is ashamed of his position, seeks to hide, to hide from the gaze of the observer. A woman does not feel shame, not in a hurry to hide or run away.
The tower is the exaltation of laws, rules, foundations, a huge load created by society over many centuries. The tower has several cracks - a symbol of the destruction of a long-term system.
Around the tower is empty space. There is nothing - no other towers, no other people.
