Speaking of insanity... I present for your consideration, Salvador Dali, the Spanish surealist artist, who had an irrational fear of locusts. Above-"Morphological Echo"

"Three Sphinxes of Bikini"
"Soft Construction with boiled beans" A premonition of civil war, this a representation of the state of the Spanish when in civil war, alterantley grasping up at themselves and holding themselves down under foot...
"The Burning Giraffe" In the distance is a giraffe with its back on fire DalĂ­ described this image as “the masculine cosmic apocalyptic monster.” He believed it to be a premonition of war...
"The Face of War" Dali often claimed that his works were premonitions of war...this painting was done between the Spanish Civil War and the second World war.
