Description

Terpsichore is one of the famed nine Mythological muses. In creating his version of the muse of dance, Terpsichore, Dalí uses a reflected image, setting the soft, carnal muse against the hardened, statuesque one. The lack of definition in both faces clearly underlines the purely symbolic significance of these figures. The dancer with the smooth and classical form represents Grace and the unconscious, while the other angular, cubist figure represents the ever-growing and chaotic rhythm of modern life. Both figures dance side by side in everyone.
