One of Dali’s famous surrealist landscapes, Iris [+Eyes] brings together the iris of an eye with the Iris as a type of flower. Dali replaced the flower’s center with eyes, and he crowned its petals with thorny lashes. While this merge obviously creates a linguistic pun, it also blends symbols of physically seeing the world (the eyes) and believing what you know about it (the flower is a symbol of faith).
