$79,401.67

About

"XAI” lamb designed by Salvador Dali manufactured by BD Barcelona and Deyrolle. Measures: 87 x 26 x H 71 (head) and H 59 (back) approximate Inspired by the painting "Interpretation Project for a stabile-library" (1942) Limited edition of twenty white lambs and one unique version in black. Naturally, as each piece is unique, each piece is different and each little table is in reality an only piece. Deyrolle certifies that the sheep skins used for the production of these pieces come from a slaughter house which is a meat supplier and no animal sacrifice has been made. BD has received the support of the exceptional expertise and capacity of Deyrolle, the taxidermist from Paris who maintained an intense relationship with Salvador Dalí (many of Dalí’s pieces, bears, lions, lobster, swans are made by Deyrolle). Apart from the exceptional work of the taxidermist, emphasis must be placed on the maker of little table’s drawer and the little shoes in bronze. Oscar Tusquets.

About the Artist

Salvador Dalí­

Instantly recognizable by his waxed, upturned mustache, the flamboyant Salvador Dalí (1904–89) is one of modern art’s most distinctive figures. He is also one of the icons of the 20-century avant-garde Surrealist movement, whose dreamlike images, drawn from the depths of the unconscious, he deployed in paintings, sculptures, prints and fashion, as well as in film collaborations with Luis Buñuel and Alfred Hitchcock. Dalí was born in Figueres, Catalonia, and even as a youngster, displayed the sensitivity, sharp perception and vivid imagination that would later define his artworks. In these, he conjured childhood memories and employed religious symbols and Freudian imagery like staircases, keys and dripping candles to create unexpected, often shocking pieces. His use of hyperrealism in conveying Surrealist symbols and concepts that subvert accepted notions of reality is epitomized in what is perhaps his most recognizable painting, The Persistence of Memory (1931), in which he depicts the fluidity of time through melting clocks, their forms inspired by Camembert cheese melting in the sun. Dalí’s artistic genius, eccentric personality and eternal quest for fame made him a global celebrity. “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure,” he once said. “That of being Salvador Dalí.” Find Salvador Dalí prints, sculptures and other works on 1stDibs.
