In Voluptas Mors [1] (1951) is a collaboration between Salvador Dalí and Philippe Halsman. It was a surrealistic photographic portrait of Dali beside a large skull, in fact a tableau vivant composed of seven female nudes. Halsman took three hours to arrange the models according to a sketch by Dali.

The photograph has been used in miniature in The Silence of the Lambs advertising poster.
