Salvador Dali - Study for the Scenario for The Surrealist Mystery of New York (1935)
“Outside his window, an anthropomorphic skyscraper is used for breeding hysterical mediums. One of these mediums escapes from the glacier and enters the head’s room and rushes towards him threateningly.
He prudently flees, but in her fury, the medium shuts the door, ripping off his hand. The medium is terrified to discover the horrible hole at the centre of the hand through which thousands of ants begin to emerge.
The hand writhes in agony and now becomes a horrible ball crawling with ants and a swarm of bees that have also come out of the hole.”
