Surrealist genius Salvador Dali brought us striking mind-benders like this image, a collaboration between himself and photographer Philippe Halsman entitled Voluptuous Death...

this installment in his Elephants series...

...and his most famous painting, Persistence of Memory.


Lucky for us, his works did not stop coming when he died at the age of 84 in 1989. In 2003, fourteen years after his death and fifty-seven years after it was begun, a short film collaboration between himself and Walt Disney was completed, and it's as dreamy and whimsical as you could imagine.

The film, titled Destino, follows Dali's surreal figures as they make their way about the world, thanks to Disney's animation. The two worked tirelessly on the project for eight months before learning that they could no longer afford it, but forty-eight years later, it was taken from the vault and completed by Disney's nephew Roy E. Disney and Baker Bloodworth.

Now, you can watch the 11 minute film on YouTube. Enjoy!
