"Crucifixion (Hypercubic Body)"

Salvador Dali - Oil

famous painting Crucifixion (Hypercubic Body) of Salvador Dali


Salvador Dali paints a non-traditional and surrealist interpretation of Christ’s Crucifixion. Here, Christ is depicted on a “polyhedron net of a tesseract” or a hypercube, a four-dimensional figure. It was at this time that Dali was fascinated with nuclear science and we can see him continuously incorporating elements of science and mathematics in spiritual or religious paintings, portraying what he called ‘nuclear mysticism’. Consistent with his previous work, Dali uses dreamlike features, depicting Christ levitating over the hypercube above a chessboard amidst a barren landscape. Christ is devoid of any scars on his hands and feet without the crown of thorns, signs closely associated with his Crucifixion, He does this in his other depictions as well. The use of the hypercube implies Dali's reverence for a god who exists in a space that humans cannot comprehend. But it is a 3-D representation, showing that Christ was a human form of god. Below Christ, is Gala, Dali’s wife as Mary Magdalene. On closer observation, you can also see Gala’s face on Christ’s seemingly grotesque knee. The painting is preserved in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
