One of the recurring motifs in Dalí's works are elephants. He used this motif for the first time in the painting "Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening" in 1944. A fish emerges from a pomegranate, from which two tigers jump out, awakening an otherwise peacefully sleeping and dreaming woman.
