The bronze sculpture "Nobility of Time" shows a Dali typical melting clock hanging on a tree with two Branches, an angel and a female Nude with cloth are on the left and the right. The Ensemble has überwirklich, fantastic, and absurd at the same time. The main themes of the artist were a dream, subconscious, and Paranoia. He was very inspired by the treatises of the psychoanalyst Siegmund Freud. The time plays an important role in Dali's work. So you find again and again in the Form of watches. You can't be stopped or turned back. It just runs on and on. The memory remains, but this is real? The discontent of the population, but also the artist in 1929 - caused by the world economic crisis also led to a second Manifesto of the Surrealists and sealed a militant change of course in the service of the Revolution. In search of a method by which the unconscious and the reality could connect with each other, took the Communist group around André Breton, Louis Aragon, Paul Eluard, and Pierre Unik, the 1929 to Paris, moved to Salvador Dalí, and its Critical Paranoia with wide-open arms. His interest in the plastic factory of Dali discovered in the 1930s and continued it all his life. The sculptures will form a major part of Dali's surrealist work.
