Andre Breton, le tamanior (The Ant-eater)

Andre Breton was a poet and the founder of the Surrealist movement. He was lovingly nicknamed 'Le Tamanior' (translated to 'The Anteater') by several Surrealist artists including Dali. Dali would sometimes use the symbology of the anteater to represent his friend. An infamous case of this being the photograph of Dali walking out of a metro station with two anteaters on a leash as a homage to Breton shortly after his death in 1966.
