Lilies with Clock Face


Dali - Lilies with Clock Face


The Surrealist master Salvador Dali transformed textbook illustrations of white lilies with his iconic soft watches in the 1972 graphic Lilies with Clock Face. As the central motif, white lilies become harbingers of melting time and transformation. Dali was obviously inspired by the traditional meaning of white lilies, as they have been associated with birth, the Vir-gin Mary and transformation. Dali’s illustrations resemble the gorgeous Madonna Lily, which is native to Greece and was associated with the Goddess Hera in the ancient world. Here, Dali brings this powerful and ancient symbol together with his trademark, Surrealist melting clock. This work is a wonderful example of Dali’s Surrealist icons, imagery, and thought-provoking content.
