I found this Salvador Dali's interpretation of the Linotype some years ago but never got around to posting it.

Nice one George, I'm a big fan of Dhali.

Love the Linotype machine part, but not sure if I'm picking up a subtext for the whole painting.

Is it saying "Lasoo" - there are a couple of men carrying them.

And how does that tie-in with the naked woman and the linecaster?

Art critic needed!

I've managed to find this brief description of the picture from an online auction cataloge from when it was put up for sale in 2010:

QuoteThis work is from Hommage to Leonardo da Vinci (Great Inventions). It has been authenticated on the verso by Frank Hunter at the Salvador Dali Archives. The Annual Print Price Guide to the Graphic Works of Salvador Dali (Hochman, 2010) values this work at $11,500. Print is in excellent condition.
