TEMPTATION

Bury desire –

Unleash the phantasmic hordes,

You cannot sate them

NB: featured image is Max Ernst’s ‘the temptation of St Anthony’. Did you know in 1946 a famous film production company held a contest for a painting of St Anthony’s temptation, Max Ernst won with the above piece, but it might surprise you that one of his competitors was none other than Salvador Dali, and his painting went on to become one of the most iconic surrealist paintings of all (the spindly elephant one).
