Technical Specifications

Triumphant Elephant, limited edition Salvador Dali sculpture.

The elephant, Dalí’s iconoclastic symbol of the future and one of his favourite images, is often depicted atop mosquito-like legs, emphasising the contrast between robustness and fragility, much like the contrast between the past and modernity.  The animal’s jewelled saddle symbolises wealth, and the dawn of a new era is announced by a flying angel, trumpeting success and prosperity.  Dalí’s elephant exemplifies every individual’s hope for abundance and good fortune in the future.
