Dali Sculpture - London

“Nobility of Time” Dali Sculpture – London

“Nobility Of Time”, Dali’s melted and crowned watch, is both draped against and supported by the remains of a tree – the trunk sprouts new life and its roots entwine a stone.  According to a Dalinian watch, time has no internal power or motion. Given this watch’s lack of movement, the crown is interpreted as a royal crown adorning the watch, clearly identifying time’s mastery over human beings, rather than being an object of utility. His majesty is attended by two reoccurring mystic Dalinian symbols: a pensive angel and a nude female figure elegantly draping herself in a long piece of cloth. In the background of the photo is the world’s most famous clock, Big Ben.
