Homage to Newton, limited edition Salvador Dalí sculpture.

Dalí honours and commends Newton for his discovery of the law of gravity, symbolised by the famed falling apple, represented here by a sphere of metal attached to a line, thus losing its impermanence as well as its capacity for regeneration.   

Dalí implies that the living being, Sir Isaac Newton, has become a mere name in science, completely stripped of his personality and individuality, this is further symbolized by the lack of arms on the figure. To represent this transformation, Dalí has pierced the figure with two large holes: one which portrays the absence of Newton’s vital organs, while the other clearly displays the lack of mind. What remains is only symbolic representation.
