Salvador DALI - The sharp herd

Artist: Salvador Dalí
Title: " the sharp herd”
Medium: gold processed colour etching
Serie: Portfolio “the songs of Salomon”
Year: 1971
Edition: 250
Description: The Songs of Songs of Solomon is a portfolio of 12 drypoint etchings plus colour and gold dust. Each etching is signed by Dali in the lower right. This is a beautifully drawn series inspired to the Song of Solomon, from the Old Testament. The protagonists of Song of Songs are a woman (Shulamite) and a man, and the poem suggests movement from courtship.
In spite of the lack of explicitly religious content, Song of Songs has often been interpreted as a parable of the relationship of God and Israel, or for Christians, Christ and the Church or Christ and the human soul, as husband and wife.
