In the creation of his version of the muse of music, Terpsichore, Dali uses a reflected image, setting a soft, carnal muse against a hardened, statuesque one. The lack of definition in both faces clearly underlines the purely symbolic significance of these figures. The smooth and classical dancer is representative of inner harmony and the unconscious, while the angular, cubist figure from which we see branches sprouting, represents the ever-growing and chaotic rhythm of modern life. Both figures dance side by side within each of us, one representing grace and the subconscious; the other representing the sensuality of life.
