Persistence of Memory Pin


Salvador Dalí's full name was Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marquess of Dalí de Púbol, which we feel was a little extra. Even in 7pt type, you can't fit that on a pin like this, so just enjoy its oozing clock goodness.

About "The Persistence of Memory"

One of the most recognizable works of Surrealism, this 1931 painting by Salvador Dalí is often referred to as “Melting Clocks.”

Fairly small in size, it measures 9.5 inches x 13 inches or 24 centimeters x 33 centimeters. It was given by an anonymous donor to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, where it still hangs today.

The melting pocket watch epitomizes Dalí’s theory of “softness” and “hardness,” which was central to his thinking at the time.
