After the Second World War, Dali converted, by his own account, to mysticism. The painting named Temptation of Saint Anthony originated from an entry for a film poster competition. It shows Dali's nuclear mysticism in all its fierceness. The original painting shows a naked Antonius warding off a frightening mounted horse with a sword, which, standing on legs as thin as gossamer defies the laws of gravity. The Saint tries not to be seduced by the earthly temptations, symbolized by the horse as a symbol of power, followed by almost floating elephants which carry on their backs symbols of lust and greed. The elephants have very thin legs too which bear the improbable weight of the mighty elephants. This statue is an adaptation from this painting of the elephants with skinny legs.
