Meet Dali’s Ovocipede: a new means of travel inspired by: “the fantasies provoked by the intra-uterine paradises.” The “vehicle” can be rolled over land, water, ice, or snow. - Popular Mechanics, 1960

Salvador Dali and Harpo Marx!

Dali was a huge fan of the comedic geniuses that were the Marx brothers, especially Harpo. In an interview from a 1937 issue of Harper's Bazaar, Dali described his first meeting with Harpo Marx:

“I met Harpo for the first time in his garden. He was naked, crowned with roses, and in the center of a veritable forest of harps (he was surrounded by at least five hundred harps). He was caressing, like a new Leda, a dazzling white swan, and feeding it a statue of the Venus de Milo made of cheese, which he grated against the strings of the nearest harp. An almost springlike breeze drew a curious murmur from the harp forest. In Harpo’s pupils glows the same spectral light to be observed in Picasso’s.”
