Take time out at Mall to explore Dalí sculptures
Fascinating sculptures created by Salvador Dalí are currently on show at the Mall shopping centre, Cribbs Causeway. The exhibition entitled Of Time and Space is being staged by the centre's Castle Galleries and represents some of the most iconic images Dalí ever created.
They stay on show until Sunday, May 27. Included in the nine-sculpture collection is Dance of Time I, II and III; Horse Saddled with Time; Nobility of Time; and Profile of Time.
"The melted watch is the most well-known and beloved of Dalí's images, inspired by a dream about a runny Camembert cheese on a hot summer's afternoon, symbolising the image of time devouring itself and everything in its path," says the Gallery.
"While the elephant, in artworks such as Space Elephant and Triumphant Elephant, is also one of Dalí's most memorable and favourite images and an iconoclastic symbol of the future.

"His elephant is often depicted atop mosquito-like legs, emphasising the contrast between robustness and fragility, which in Dalí's view is much like the contrast between the past and modernity."
Dalí died more than 20 years ago yet is still regarded as one of the most eccentric and surrealist artists of all time.
Helen Roden, manager at Castle Galleries Bristol, said: "Dalí's famously transformed everyday objects into bizarre symbols, representing deeper emotional themes and we are delighted to give our customers the opportunity to explore this symbology."
