regarding #2...the Dali. He sure did epitomize the sacred and the profane. His religious imagery is to me extraordinary. And yet he said such things as (I'm paraphrasing): Nothing is more beautiful than the smell of human excrement.
I think that's the only picture I've ever seen that depicts our Lord with short hair ... a feature I'm convinced is true.

(A place where anyone can learn anything ... especially that which promotes clear thinking.)
After reading a relatively recent bio of Salvador Dali, I have to admit that he was more seriously bent than I had thought. Too bad he and Kanonenkoenig
Krupp couldn't have gotten together and debated the aromatic qualities of human vs. horse excrement.
Still, I considered Dali to be an absolute hoot when he opened up the throttle on his ego and roared past. I especially enjoyed the grand statements he occasionally issued once he had reached old age... I often wondered whether he was being serious or just tweaking everyone (or a combination of the two).
After all these years, I still have a friendly feeling for Dali's limp watches and Magritte's locomotive choogling out of the fireplace.
