This piece, The Burning Giraffe, is a 1937 piece by Salvador Dali. The eponymous giraffe, however, is in the background, far to the bottom left and far from the painting's main character. The surrealism is clear, and there are clear religious overtones. The figure is propped up, elegantly posed but clearly dependent. This is a particularly unique piece for its assumed lack of surrealism--compared to, say, The Persistance of Memory.
