Subject matter
This work was part of Salvador Dalí's 1975 Imaginations and Objects of the Future portfolio. It contained ten prints with an introductory text by the artist that discussed the project's focus on new technologies' ability to create an alternate universe, especially through holograms. 
In this work, Dalí combines imagery to represent a Surrealist scene of futuristic sun bathing. To the right, the collaged image is a part of his earlier 1941 painting "Soft Self-Portrait with Grilled Bacon" (Dalí Theatre-Museum). The opaque imagery of grilling bacon and sun bathing creates a humerous and hideous image.

Physical Description
This print has a central image of a nude woman, depicted in blue, with long yellow hair, holding an orange, red, and green umbrella. To her right, there is another umbrella, with an orange handle and a collaged canopy. There are a number of line drawings and text (mirrored) around the second umbrella. To the right, there is a collaged face. At the bottom of the print is a blue sea and a drawing in red of a sailboat. The print is signed (l.r.) and numbered (l.l.) in pencil.
