About the Salvador Dali Sculptures
Bronze Sculpture – Height: 141.7”
Woman Aflame, standing nearly 12-feet tall combines important Dalinian Motifs: flame and fire, crutches and the female figure intersected with drawers. It has been exhibited in the most important cities in the world: Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Taipei, New York, Singapore and Beverly Hills.
Bronze Sculpture – Height: 98”
Salvador Dali chose to transform the banal wooden legs of a piano, replacing them with dancing female legs, thus creating an animate, joyous instrument that can dance as well as play. It has been exhibited in cities such as London, Paris, Venice, Shanghai, New York, Singapore, and Los Angeles.
