Hello Friends ^_^ this full blooded and rich rose isn’t one of Salvador Dali’s surrealistic paintings . It’s the spinning vortex of Saturn’s north polar storm which resembles a deep red rose of giant proportions surrounded by green foliage in this false-color image from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 261,000 miles (419,000 kilometers) from Saturn and the image was taken on Nov. 27, 2012
And if you don’t know why we mentioned Salvador Dali’s paintings , please take a look of Dali’s 1958 painting Rose Meditative .
The rose in this painting is floating in space a blossom without stem suspended over, and completely and utterly dwarfing, a dreary landscape. Two tiny figures are visible on the ground below it, indicating the rose’s massive scale. The rose’s presence is deliberately ambiguous: is it a real object? Is it a figment of the imaginations of the figures in the painting? A figment of our imagination? In turn, our relation to the rose is called into question by the title. Although the rose may be meditative in the sense of the spiritual, it may also be a contemplative meditation: it is contemplating us, as we are contemplating it. The brilliant red color of the rose makes it even more auspicious in this setting. It is contrasted sharply against the cool blue sky, and the dull, warm earth tones of the landscape and the yellowed horizon above it.
Do you notice any connection between the real Saturn’s storm & this imaginative painting of Dali ! or it’s just a nonsense coincidence !
