Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali Bronze Modern Art Sculpture Fig

With this sculpture, dal has isolated the central image of his best-known painting and given it the same title. It is an uncomplicated form composed of a melting watch draped over the branch of a tree. In his own words dal explains this imagery; "materialization of the flexibility of time and the indivisibility of time and space. Time is not rigid. It is one with space - fluid". In this sculptural form dal examines the human perception of time - when we are involved with space - fluid". In this sculptural form dal examines the human perception of time - when we are involved in enjoyable activities or in work that absorbs all our attention, 'time flies', but when we are mired in boredom, time drags.

This sculpture was cast using the "lost wax method" and it is mounted on a marble base and is signed salvador dali. read more
