Salvador Dalí was not only a painter, but also a multifaceted and eclectic artist in the true sense of the word. He has been widely recognized as a sculptor, writer, illustrator, director, jewelry designer and much more.

The passion and overwhelming desire to express himself with sculpture became a constant in his life. He was particularly interested in sculpture from 1934 until 1987.
Dalí was fascinated by this artistic technique and conceived a series of original models to be transformed into surreal sculptures and objects.
In this way his creative genius was able to manifest himself in three-dimensionality, transforming into sculptures those which remain among the most famous and beloved iconographic images created during his life.

The artworks are made of bronze, using the lost wax casting technique. This technique consists in creating a wax model and using it to make a mold in which to pour the molten bronze.
In addition to the bronze works, Dalí created one of the most interesting collections of colored glass sculptures in the world.. The collection is the result of his artistic collaboration with the prestigious French glass factory Daum Cristallerie. Dalí made the first glass objects in the 1940s, but the most important part of his work began in 1968 for Daum and then spanned almost twenty years.
Dalí believed that the 'pâte de verre (glass paste)' offered the perfect tool for "the expression of metamorphosis" which, according to the artist, was his surrealist perception of reality. The Daum collection allows us to admire the genius of the Catalan master through the semi-transparency of sculptures modeled in colored glass.
