The Artistic Properties of Cauliflower

In one of the stranger episodes of art history, in 1955 surrealist artist Salvador Dali filled a Rolls Royce with 500 kilograms of cauliflower and proceeded to drive from his home country of Spain to Paris, France.

It is unclear whether this endeavor was a strange stunt meant to solidify his eccentric personality in the public eye, or whether he really felt a connection to the vegetable, whose shape he admired as it contained the spiritual and mathematical “logarithmic curve.” This same artist also almost suffocated in a deep-sea diving suit that he was using to represent his explorations of the subconscious.
