On 27th February 2015, I took a look at a book of Dali pictures and suddenly notice HR Giger: Dali "Debris of an automobile giving birth to a blind horse biting a telephone" painted in 1938 as a homage to Picasso's Guernica. Perhaps we can say that reinterpreting Guernica seemed to be a sort of a surrealist preoccupation. Dali's work hich is shows a life form that's part horse and part car, indeed a biomechanoid in its own right and perhaps gets loosely in the catagory of weird early 20th Century biomechanoids that we can put Max Ernst's weird elephantine creation Celebes from 1921. Looking further we can see signs of Dali's painting incorporated into Gige's Anima Mia.
