The Voice of My Beloved Behold from Song of Songs of Solomon
25.5" x 19.5"
Etching with stencil coloring
1971

The Song of Songs of Solomon is a series from the early 1970s consisting of 12 etchings that demonstrate Dalí's interest in religious themes and stories of the Old Testament. In this etching, Dalí focuses on the verse "The voice of my beloved! behold! he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills" (Song of Solomon 2:8, King James Version). Creating a figurative interpretation of this text, Dalí uses circular and radiating lines to convey a sense of energy and holiness as the central Christ figure appears above a white mountain.
