Salvador Dalí & Hermann Hesse's Curios Parallelism

Salvador Dalí & Hermann Hesse's Curios Parallelism

The painting 'Geopoliticus Child Watching the Birth of the New Man' (Salvador Dalí, 1943) and the following quote from Demian (Hermann Hesse, 1919) parallel in meaning and can reveal a similar point of view.

 

'The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Who would be born must first destroy a world. The bird flies to God. That God's name is Abraxas.'
