Project Description

GUTS AND HEAD  –   Sculpture by Salvador Dali

Guts and Head

Dali’s world is synthesized in this piece combining the visceral with the black humour which the Catalan artist so much enjoys.

Ambiguity is once again present in these serpentine forms.

Dali, arising from this amorphous mass, looks at the observer maliciuously and asks him what he thinks about life’s basic realities.

He leaves the observer of this sculpture-oracle to make up his own mind, without intermediaries.

Certain profiles perhaps suggest anthropomorphic figures.  This is a surreal and metaphysical piece.
