In this sculpture, Dalí wished to illustrate the oneness of God and the Divine Trinity of the Christian dogma. At the center of the artwork, we see a giant thumb reaching upwards. The strength and supremacy of God the Father is represented by the thumb from which all life emerges, symbolized by the young branches.To the right of this divine being stands humanity: a man-figure bursting with life’s vitality which represents the Son of God. He directs his branches yet again upwards but is also rooted to the earth.  On the left of the Creator, the presence of the winged-figure represents the Holy Spirit. The angel is depicted in a meditative act, his chin resting on his hand and his wing supported by a crutch.
