Wings Reverberating Like an Echo


The album cover is by the eminent contemporary artist Salvador Dalí.
He describes his conception in these words:
“The first effect is that of anguish, of space, and of solitude.
Secondly, the fragility of the wings of a butterfly, projecting long shadows of late afternoon, reverberates in the landscape like an echo.
The feminine element, distant and isolated, forms a perfect triangle with the musical instrument and its other echo, the shell.”
