A woman carries a soft watch over her arm, the iconic Dalinian symbol of Time, and holds in her hands a rose stem, symbol of beauty and harmony. The elegance and graceful form of the woman’s unusual dress recalls the Liberty Style popular in the early twentieth century. Dalí’s Woman of Time sculpture is a homage to feminine grace and beauty; whilst the soft watch alludes to the women’s awareness that beauty fades with time. As the title suggests, the artist poses the question: does beauty depend on time or is it eternal?
