In this series that was created in 1967-1968, Dali is inspired by floral motifs of the Museum of Natural History that were painted by Belgian artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759 – 1840) such as rose, dahlia, lily, daisy, thought, etc., and diverted them into his own Dalian style, forming a superb collection of fantastic flowers among which a Dahlia-Unicorn, a musical lily or daisies become the heart of the "canvas". As in all of Dali’s paintings, flowers carried a symbolic meaning for the painter. Flowers represent the symbol of knowledge, the futility of life. The series of the ‘Florals’ include the variety of different surrealistic objects, that make flowers appear as human beings. Dalí has added many surreal elements from his imagination which itself took inspiration from the land of his birth, the region of Empordá, Catalunha. The result are some delicious illustrations in which the plants come alive with their spirits from within.
