DESIGNREASONS sells collectors' items such as this print of Dali's Flaming Giraffe from the Dali Museum. Dali the Spanish surrealist known for his melting watches, created The Flaming Giraffe in 1937.  When Dolores and her husband Warren Browne visited the Dali Museum they immediately saw art reflecting Jewish perseverance.

 

Dali was an introspective intellectual who believed that the body and mind were full of secrets. Browne, creator of this Dali print, wanted to reveal the beauty within the strength needed to fight fire and flames in order to survive, and display art reflecting Jewish perseverance. Dolores Browne believes that though many people lost their lives and were surrounded by destruction, the beauty of survival, though flames burn above, is insurmountable.  Convinced that psychoanalysis was the only way the suppressed could be revealed, he allowed his art to become his psychiatrist and reveal his extra sensory perception. 

 

The Dali Flaming Giraffe was created before Dali's exile to the United States (1940-1948).  It was included on a series of sketches Dali produced representing a movie written by Harpo Marx called Giraffes on Horseback Salad, that the Marx Brothers were planning to appear.  Dali's Flaming Giraffe burns in the distance.  Dali's Flaming Giraffe is seen in Dali's film The Golden Age and in the painting, "The Invention of Monsters."  Many people, including Dolores believe Dali's Flaming Giraffe is art that reflects Jewish perseverance during and after World War II, a time when Jewish existence was not tolerated.

Dali saw the Flaming Giraffe as a "premonition of war and a great struggle."  The above print is a numbered photograph of Dali's Flaming Giraffe, ( A finely beaded sculpture from the Dali Museum. http://www.designreasons.com/products/dalis-flaming-giraffe-dali-museum 


The flaming mane represents the heat and fire that the Jewish people had to endure.
