Bring one of Dali's most famous paintings on your desktop. The Great Masturbator was painted in 1929 by Salvador Dali, just before meeting Gala.
His needs in Paris by that time became his grief. This painting is a self-portrait where sexual desires and fears are reflected. By then Dalí was still a virgin.
Among several symbols, the following ones stand out: the grasshopper, who terrified Salvador; the head of a lion alluding repressed desires; and a flower-vessel that near the chest of the woman, hopes to be filled.
