About the Artwork: The worldly people belonging to the zodiac sign Sagittarius are captivated with how people think and what they believe. Nicolas Sokoloff, author of The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac, which Salvador Dali illustrated in 1967, describes Sagittarius saying, “Through study and travel, he acquires a knowledge which he will use as a stepping stone towards new worlds, new discoveries, and future mutations.” (from: Sokoloff, Nicolas. The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac. Paris: Trois Anges, 1969. p.69. Print.)
