Salvador Dali

Cat.Rais. Descharnes: The Hard and the Soft, Sculptures & Objects, pg. 252 ref. 650

The rising horse, a symbol of modern man, is saddled with a soft watch. Dali was enthusiastic about Einstein’s theory of relativity and believed that time and space could not be separated. For this sculpture, Dalí formed the wax model with his fingers; his fingerprints are clearly visible in the horse’s body and mane.

Original bronze edition, conceived and cast for the first time in 1980, personally authorized by Dali.
