"Argus" is a rare hand-colored etching from Dalí’s 1963 portfolio "The Mythology." The image is based on the Greek myth of Argus, a hundred-eyed giant who was slain by Zeus and whose eyes were scattered across the tail of a peacock by Zeus’ wife Hera. Dalí festooned the peacock’s wings with human eyeballs hand-colored in red, blue, green and yellow. This impression comes from the edition of 50 on Japon paper, aside from the edition of 150 on Arches and 20 EA's. This impression is in excellent condition.
