Lot description
This sculpture translates one of Dalí's most famous religious images in three-dimensional form. The artist created the painting with the same name in 1951 after seeing a drawing by Saint John of the Cross, who had an ecstatic vision of Christ. While the painting shows Christ suspended on a cross, the sculptural work shows him suspended without the cross, his body hanging, and his arms held by an invisible force.

This sublime bronze sculpture is from an edition of 500, measures 13.78 x 5.5 x 5.5 inches (35 x 14 x 14 cm) and is in excellent condition. Including the base, the sculpture height is 15 inches (38.1 cm). The sculpture base dimensions are 6.1 x 6.1 inches (15.5 x 15.5 cm).
