Pair of Salvador Dali "Aphrodite" Sculptures

$2,400Asking Priceper set

About

A pair of Surrealist tabletop sculptures that were created solely for use as promotional store displays for the release of Salvador Dali's "Salvador Dali" perfume. The now-iconic perfume bottle forms were modeled after the nose and lips of the goddess Aphrodite as depicted in Dali's own 1981 painting, “Apparition of the face of Aphrodite of Knidos” (see last image here for reference). The sculptures are a lightweight, molded resin finished in a matte black paint and are filled with small beads for balance. Each bears a variation of a Dali "signature". They date, roughly, to the mid-1980s (the men's cologne, represented by the bowling-pin-looking figure, was released in 1987) but could be a bit later as new Dali fragrances have been issued since the debut. Such demo/promo works are made in strictly-limited numbers and it's not likely that many other examples have survived. *Each measures 12" tall. Widths are 7" and 9 1/2".
