About this product


Dalí’s bronze sculpture, Profile of Time, echoes the artist’s seminal 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory in which the famous melted watch first appears. The soft watch liquefies lamentably over the tree forming a double image; when tilting one’s head to the left a hidden image appears; the clock face morphs into the artists profile, an eye, a pointed nose, and the number 9 suggestive of Dalí’s moustache. Dalí enjoyed rotating images and experimenting with malleability; he manipulated and mutated everyday objects to disrupt reality, blurring the boundaries between the unconscious and conscious.
