'The Swallow's Tail' - Dali's final painting

Recommended Posts

Anyone else see the hexagon and/or the three figures? IMO if one can see and understand this final Dali painting, inspired by Catastrophe Theory in mathematics, then the rest of his abstract work seems to make sense for the most part. No analysis I've come across COMES CLOSE to explaining it the way I'm seeing it. His final interview is also REALLY interesting IMHO...

Until I saw the hexagon at the top-middle I didn't see or understand the symbols (including the three gross creatures) and 'meanings' so it could get a lot more interesting!

This is another cool painting called The School of Athens by Rafael whom Dali mentions in the above video. If I had to guess it represents Aristotle on the right and Socrates or Plato on the left.
