Roland Penrose
"Rose de sable"
1929

Roland found this stone 
in the desert and offered it to
Max Ernst in
1929.
This stone inspired all the later sculptures
if my terrible French is correct...
Nice presentation Roland!
I wish my friends gave me gifts like this....

All photos from this
amazing book:
