I bout a framed painting about 50cm x 50cm at an Op. The ants on the red clock symbolizes anxiety or nervousness. Some of these sculptures are the Persistence of Memory, the Nobility of Time, the Profile of Time, and the Three Dancing Watches. The Persistence of Memory has sparked considerable academic debate as scholars interpret the painting.
Whatever Dali wanted to convey by the painting, he took the interpretation with him to his grave. Dali's painting combines three art genres: the still life, the landscape and the self-portrait. Beschreibung Das nur 24,1 Zentimeter auf 33 Zentimeter große Ölbild zeigt drei zerfließende Taschenuhren, die in der katalanischen Landschaft vor den schroffen Felsen des Cap de Creus arrangiert sind. If they are open edition pieces, probably not very much. That's how it relates to it. Melting Clocks Dali made the term melting clocks famous, even outside of the scope of surrealism as.

The craggy rocks to the right represent a tip of Cap de Creus peninsula in north-eastern Catalonia.
