Find the critter made out of the letters of Miro's name. Can you see the letters?
When Miro was a young struggling artist he would often not be able
to eat for days. Apparently this hunger led to hallucinations where
he would stare at the cracks in the walls and they would become some
of the creatures you see in his surreal paintings.
Joan Miro experimented with Surrealism like Dali. His works are whimsical and child like and major symbols you will find in many of his works were birds, women, stars and constellations, the sun, the moon.
