This evocative artwork was created by Surrealist master Salvador Dali after his painted masterpiece hanging in Scotland's Glasgow Museum.  Dali's painting was itself inspired by a drawing done by Saint John of the Cross -- preserved in the Convent of the Incarnation in Avila, Spain -- that depicts a vision of Christ in ecstasy.  This drawing profoundly affected Dali, who always considered his painting of Christ being crucified as one of his finest works.
 
In this sculpture, the Christ figure represents the shape of the cross.  Christ is standing on a stake like those driven through his hands and feet.  The scene depicts an eternal moment of complete surrender.
 
Dali's artwork is mounted onto a tapered black marble base, and stands 15" high by 7" wide.  It is signed "Dali" in two locations in the bronze: on Christ's right calf and in the stones in which the spike is standing.  It is from a limited edition of 350 castings, with edition numbering stamped into the bronze.  Please click on the thumbnail images above to see additional views of this beautiful artwork, and click on any image to enlarge it.
