“This title is actually a phrase that appears 20 times in the Bible, “the Land flowing with milk and honey.” It is used to describe the Holy Land promised by God to the Jewish people. The phrase embodies the aspiration of the Zionist dream.
Dali portrays a lush landscape at the bottom of the print which is very similar to what one can see as one travels the highway from the airport to Jerusalem. The landscape is surmounted by three figures: one stands straight and, judging from the imagery, suggests fecundity; one, in a graceful dance position, pours out blessing; and one, in medieval costume, is about to play a flute. Between the figures is a deep blue image that stretches up to the heavens which, themselves, contain a dark rain cloud. Indeed, aside from irrigation, the Land depends on rain for its fertility.”
