The painting is quite large, larger than 3x5 feet (but I don't remember exactly how large) and was finished in 1954. The actual cross is the net of a cube. For his painting, Dali added use of the net of a tesseract. In viewing the original one is immediately struck by the simplicity of the landscape, background, and Christ's body contrasted with the classic realism of Gala/Madonna and the relatively grotesque detail amplification of Christ's knees and hands. In the original painting you can see at least 5 images of Gala in Christ's right knee and 5 images of Salvador in Christ's left knee. It would be interesting to view this under ultraviolet and infrared light to explore what else Dali may have hidden in this painting. Oddly the only other art I've seen to take direct inspiration of 'hidden images in knees' is male erotic Tom of Finland 'biker boy' 1982 where a lower woman's torso is hidden in right knee; a man's upper torso and phalic image are hidden in the left.
