A very happy 108th Anniversary of your birth May 11 today Salvador.
You had a huge influence on me as a teenager, I adored Surrealism and I think Dali was a true genius.
If you have never had the pleasure of seeing a real Dali painting in person they are meticulous, and some huge and Dali’s most famous painting The Persistence of Memory is tiny only 24 cm × 33 cm or 9.5 in × 13 in
It’s the paintings’ imagery which makes it so well…memorable.
108 is an auspicious number, I am riffing off of Numerology , 11:11.see previous article…
108 is the amount of beads in a MALA, a Hindu Buddhist Jains and Sikhs all use prayers beads with 108 beads, the same as a Catholic rosary built on the older traditions.
the # 108 = 9 x 9 magical numbers multiplied by itself.
108 in Euclidean space is the interior angles of a regular pentagon, 5 angles + VENUS, measure 108 degrees each.

If you are born today or expecting a child before May 20 then Your child too will be born with the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter in Taurus. A natural surrealist.

I think Lady Gaga used Dali as her muse.
