Dali painted the forms in this art piece in highly realistic detail, a skill that earned him comparison to the Renaissance Masters like Raphael. He coined the phrase ‘hand dream painted dream photographs’ in addressing his paintings, mirroring their proximity to the realistic depictions of the camera, and used the technology in illustrating the unconscious in La Persistencia De La Memoria.
In likening this technology to that of the camera, Dali invoked the power of the camera to reproduce a realistic version of the image, and to manipulate and magnify the value or significance of the image. The image, in this 'photograph', was the unconscious, the center piece of the surrealist ideology.
