Interpretation of Lobster Telephone by Salvador Dali
This piece’s style is 20th century surrealism; A combination of items that don’t normally go together

I looked at several websites and several pieces and this one just kept catching my eye. It’s so odd, like you’d never expect a telephone and a lobster to go together. The lobster is clearly fake I think maybe I could be a little more realistic since obviously the phone is real with the cord and all it seems to clash a little. The coloring on the lobster is kind of dull and could be more saturated. The shape and size seems to be right though. The phone is very nice. Looks nearly brand new. I’ve always likes these type of phones.
