Literary game known as weird corpse was invented around 1925 by the French surrealist group composed of writers and artists such as Guillaume Apollinaire, Man Ray and Salvador Dali (1904 – 1989). The work was collective with the intention of “automatic” artistic production. It could be a drawing or a text, each artist drew or wrote a small part that was hidden and continued by another who didn't know what was on top and so on, with three or more participants. The game ended up giving curious and fun results.

An extremely original and renowned painter, author of the work Persistência da Memoria , Dali left an intense artistic production, unfortunately much copied. Countless are the drawings and paintings of fake Dali and, on the contrary, very rare are the authenticated originals still available on the world market for collectors.

In this document – ​​formally attributed to Dali in 2015 by French experts – a literary work and small drawings come together, with Dali's active participation showing two aspects of his creative genius; additional and very personal interest, an “ explosive giraffe ”, my daughter Sofia’s favorite animal. There is still one mystery to solve… Who were the other participants, anonymous or famous, in this spontaneous work?
