Happy Birthday, Abe


I like to post photographs of President Abraham Lincoln on his birthday, February 12.  This unusual painting of Lincoln by the Spanish artist Salvador Dali is in Dali's museum in Figueres, Spain.
Seen one way, we have Lincoln's face.  Seen another way, we have a nude woman.
Dali was not normal.

Being "not normal" often results in amazing outcomes, such as this painting. Love it! Any "Abe Babe" born on this day shares it with an amazing historical figure. Good selection, Jack.

I saw Lincoln right away but it took a second to see the woman. You are right, he was not normal. I guess we should be thankful for that.

Yes, I see the naked woman.

But I bet he was fun!

I'm having more trouble seeing Lincoln here. He's flickered past, briefly. I know he's in there somewhere.

That's very clever. I've never seen it before. More familiar with Dali's melted clocks and suchlike.

A very clever painting.
