About the Art

This is an original color lithograph from Dali’s Biblia Sacra suite, a collection of 105 images illustrating biblical passages. Each work represents Dali’s unique interpretation of the Bible. In these works he uses a unique artistic process called “bulletism” where ink is shot onto the canvas creating an ink blot effect. The lithographs were commissioned by Guiseppe Albaretto, a good friend of Dali who was also a leading patron of his work. Albaretto wanted to lead the artist to God and back to the Catholic Church. The spontaneous bulletism process and the rich colors in the image truly highlight Dali’s range of creativity and use of space.

The title of this work refers to a passage from the Book of Revelations. According to the text, there will be a sign of a woman clothed in sun with a moon beneath her feet and a crown of twelve stars above her head. Dali shows this woman in the center in grey with a circle of orange and red around her symbolizing the sun. The repeated swirls around the woman draws attention to her and conveys a sense of wonder.
