With this sculpture, Dalí 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 Dalí 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 Dalí 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. The flaccid watch no longer `keeps` time - it does not quantify its passage. Accordingly, the speed of our time depends only on us. This sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and it is mounted on a marble base and is signed Salvador Dali.


What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.
