'In 1967, thanks to one of our Swiss publishers I presented the director of Air India, whose European bse was in Geneva, to Dali. Dali wanted to offer the airline a 'Swan-Elephant' in exchange for a living elephant in order to celebrate the passage Hannibal's elephant, Tsurus, through the Pyrenees. After seeing the mode of the Swan-Elephant, Dali was hell bent to photograph it on a pure white plate filled with milk. It was sort of ritual of purity and the swan of Leda.. The theme of the Swan-Elephant was already present in the ballet Bacchanale in 1939.' - Robert Descharnes
