MI DALÍ

  Photo: Kristin Bae Mysen Salvador Dalí’s famous picture “The Persistence of Memory” is a favorite of mine. It has many interpretations, but for me it simply says something about the small importance of time and age. And of course I love the great colors. The Spanish surrealist Dalí was once asked if Albert Einstein’s theory of special […]
