Christopher Scott Zavrel So gently
upon the mountaintops, So deftly
swept sway-- So life's
moment passes. Universe
is but a grain of Salt in the
Godly Mind. God is
but a grain of Salt in the
Mortal Mind. Mortality
is but a grain of Salt in the
Universal Mind. Then when
did we precipitate, as fallen
from a tree? Why have
we not taken root? Because
we walk while we
eat. Even the
hyena knows to
pray upon his
haunches. God is
fresh meat before
Universe in Godly Mind. Dissolve
God in Mortal Mind. Dissolve
Mortality in Universal Mind. Suffer
not the passage of Time-- May we
all walk as Gods upon Earth. From

DALI VISION: THE EYE OF WISDOM
©Photograph: Dali-Archive, Marco-VG
The Dali Year 2004 under the patronage of H.M. Juan Carlos I. and Queen Sophia of Spain is internationally celebrated. One of the most outstanding sculptures is seen at the Museum Europäische Kunst at the Noervenich-Castle near Cologne, Germany. The bust with the title: DALI VISION: THE EYE OF WISDOM is shown on the occasion of Dalí's 100 birthday in May 2004.
The work belongs to the Royal Dali Collection of the European Art Foundation. It is one of the Dali-Morphosis (1975/1976), combining the work of Dalí's friend Arno Breker and applications by Salvador Dali. The portrait of the King of Surrealism shows the so called 'Third Eye' in the forehead. Dali changed the realistic eyes into the symbol of his "soft time".

SALVADOR DALI ARCHIVE
Coco Chanel and sexy" Salvador Dalí
Foto: Dalí-Archive/Roger Schall
Coco Chanel and Salvador Dalí were considered to be a 'dream couple' in the society in the Europe of the 1930s. But there was no chance for this international fashion queen, since Dali's lover Gala did not allow any escapades to the young 33 years old painter. Dalí is shown here with the famous fashion designer Coco Chanel in 1937 in her residence in Paris. It is one of the few photographs of the King of Surrealism without an acting pose.
67 years after this photograph was taken, both are honored in the exhibition "The Divine Perfumes of Dalí" on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the master on May 11, 2004. The European Art Foundation is collecting information on Dalí and his perfumes that he created for Elsa Schiaparelli in Paris, Helena Rubinstein in New York, Coco Chanel in Paris, and others. Any information on the subject of Dalí and perfumes are welcome. Please contact Marco-VG@gmx.de
