Favourite Art Pieces- The Elephant Celebes (1921) by Max Ernst

What I like in this painting is the vivid imagination in the absurd imagery that is captured. The bold composition in the mechanical elephant highlights the profound sense of consciousness and imagination that blends poetry with perspective. The illusory effect combined with the elements of collage is a radical eye-opener into the effects of war and how it influenced the lives of those who lived through it. The piece is a great rejection of tradition and innovation into the avant-garde.
