Surrealist artist Salvador Dali’s work features many recognizable hallmarks, among them the butterfly. In this piece, he elongates the body of the butterfly to make the bottom of the body far longer than it would be in nature – another recognizable technique of his work. His artistry was heavily concerned with the concept of metamorphosis, as evidenced by his frequent use of the butterfly – a creature that begins as a caterpillar and completely transforms through its lifecycle.
