Dali, at the age of six, when he thought he was a girl, lifting the skin of the sea to watch the dog sleeping in its shadow.

The surrealistic painting I’m going to decribe is a Salvador Dalí picture which is named “Dali, at the age of six, when he thought he was a girl, lifting the skin of the sea to watch the dog sleeping in its shadow”.
In the fore-ground, on the left side, there’s a big brown and white dog with a collar. The dog's sleeping under the shadow of the sea skin, next to some sea rocks which are floating, reflected on the water. The sea’s absolutely calm, there are just some slight waves next to one small rock in front of the dog’s head, and its shore is completely straight, like if someone has drawn it with a ruler.
Next to the sea, also in the fore-ground of the picture but on the right side of it, there’s a six-years-old naked girl with a conch in her left hand. In her right hand she’s lifting the sea skin, in order to see the dog. The girl represents Dalí, when he was young and he thought he was a girl. She is also separated from the sand, like floating on the air.
In the back-ground of the picture, on the right, there are Empordà cliffs painted, and just above them there are some stretched yellowed clouds.
