Angels play a significant role in Dali's body of work, and their presence can be found in numerous references within his writings. In an entry dated May 1953 in his Diary of a Genius, Dali expressed, "I dedicated the entire day from sunrise until evening to capturing the essence of six explosive and exquisitely beautiful mathematical angels. The intensity of this endeavor left me both physically exhausted and rigid." Additionally, in August 1953, he reflected, "Angels exist in a realm beyond our perception; their essence is intricately intertwined with the 'outside' world, rendering it impossible to depict them without considering this connection." These insights were documented by Robert and Nicolas Descharnes in their Catalogue Raisonne, "Le Dur et le Mou" (2004).

Among Dali's sculptural works, the Surrealist and Cubist Angels stand out as powerful artistic statements. These fraternal twin figures possess sleek androgynous bodies, adorned with jet-black patinas. They embody Dali's fascination with mathematical symmetry and the concept of asexuality, exploring the dichotomy between man and angel. The base of the "Surrealist Angel" incorporates elements inspired by the 3rd-century Greek Icon "Winged Victory/Nike of Samothrace" from the Musée du Louvre, providing a glimpse into Dali's interpretation of his personal "Nike" symbolizing the triumphant call of victory. By acquiring this tribute sculpture, you are inviting a genuine piece of art history into your home. The sculpture is meticulously crafted from 100% bronze, employing the lost wax method. It proudly rests on a black marble base and bears the signature of Salvador Dali.
