Capture the imagination of Salvador Dali with this stunning bronze statue recreation of his famous melting clock/watches, inspired by the iconic painting artwork “The Persistence of Memory” from 1931. This bronze sculpture, standing at 33 inches in height, brilliantly embodies the fluidity of time as depicted in Dali’s surreal masterpiece. The watch, melting over the limbs of a dead tree, is finished in a dark brown patina with gold highlights on the numbers and edges, enhancing its dreamlike quality.

This exquisite piece is mounted on a beautiful black marble and white onyx base, providing a striking contrast that accentuates its details. For an added touch of personalization, a special bronze plaque can be affixed. Bring a touch of surrealism and timeless artistry into your home or office with this remarkable sculpture.
