Sky Tower Receives Dali Sculpture
Wroclaw's tallest building, the brand new Sky Tower skyscraper, will be soon home to Profile of Time, a large sculpture by legendary Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali. The sculpture once stood in Kew Gardens in London, England, but had been on display in Wroclaw's Arkady Wroclawskie shopping centre since 2008.
Profile of Time is a bronze sculpture based on one of Dali's most famous surrealist paintings - The Persistence of Memory. It shows a clock seemingly melting on a tree branch.
The sculpture, worth over $1 million US, will be on display in front of the entrance to Sky Tower's shopping centre in the southern part of central Wroclaw.
