Salvador Dali - Las Esculturas 1969 - 1976.
This Collection was modeled in wax at the artist's home in Port Lligat, Spain from 1969 to 1976 and acquired by his friend Isidro Clot.

(Perseus - Homage to Benvenuto Cellini) 1976.
Perseus the implacable, the Bronze! It is impossible to imagine this personage built with any other material. The history Greek mythology dictates that it must be so, as everything was made of bronze: The inaccessible room in which Danae was enclosed, only to be seduced by a Zeus transformed into a shower of gold, and thus to give birth to Perseus; the hands and the serpent-entangled hair of Medusa. The Gorgon's severed head with its petrifying powers, slung on Athena's shield.
Dali's helmeted Victory showing Perseus holding high the head of Medusa, the Gorgon whom he has just slain, is directly inspired by his admiration for the masterpiece created by Benvenuto Cellini, which he saw during his many trips to Florence.

Salvador Dali - Las Esculturas 1969 - 1976.
Cette collection a été modelée en cire dans la maison de l'artiste Port Lligat, en Espagne de 1969 à 1976 et acquise par son ami Isidro Clot.

(Persée - Hommage à Benvenuto Cellini) 1976.
Persée, c'est l'airain! Le bronze! Impossible d'imaginer son personnage dans une autre matière. Toute l'histoire de la mythologie grecque y oblige: De bronze la chambre d'airain inaccessible où Danaé enfermée est malgré tout séduite par Zeus transformé en pluie d'or, pour donner naissance à Persée. De bronze encore les mains et la chevelure mêlée de serpents de Méduse.
Et de bronze sa tête coupée au pouvoir pétrificateur plaquée sur le bouclier d'Athéna.
La Victoire casquée du Persée de Dali levant haut le chef de Méduse, la Gorgone qu'il vient de mettre définitivement à mal, est directement inspirée par son admiration pour le chef-d'œuvre de Benvenuto Cellini qu'il a vu pendant ses séjours répétés à Florence.
