The sculpture is one of the melted watch series inspired by Dali's famous 1931 painting 'The Persistence of Memory' which used melted clocks to symbolise the passage of time. In the Nobility of Time the soft melting watch is draped around a tree trunk and has a crown to symbolise time’s triumph over humanity.
