Dalí Atomicus

This photograph is titled "Dali Atomicus".  I like it because it makes no sense, I honestly don't see how anything in this picture links to anything else. The work is a collaborative effort of American photographer Philippe Halsman and the artist Salvador Dalí.  The medium used was 1 photographic print : gelatin silver. The artists were exploring the idea of suspension, but in my opionion the only thing that looks suspended is the easel that Dalí is painting on, everything else looks like it's falling.  I do not know where it hangs or how much it sold for.
