Why The “Fly”?
Inspired by Salvador Dalí’s obsession with verbal puns and visual plays on words, we encourage teachers and students to explore The Dalí on the “Fly” Art Mobile through the many and varied views from a fly’s eye. Dalí was intrigued by the parabolic design of the fly eye and the perspective that this inspires in viewing the world. The fly is a symbol of the multiple ways of seeing. The gadfly is also an iconic symbol in Spanish history and culture. The gadfly appears in many of Dalí’s paintings and references a Spanish Catalan folk legend about Saint Narciso. In this legend, on three occasions gadflies emerge from the tomb of St. Narciso to drive away French invaders. Dalí used this myth to underline the Catalan people’s strength against foreign influence and to express his patriotic devotion to his homeland’s independence.
