You’ve seen his paintings of dripping clocks and surreal dreamscapes. But how about his sculptures?

A series of original bronze sculptures by Salvador Dali are on display now in Vancouver. The Definitely Dali exhibit, through May 12 at the Chali-Rosso Art Gallery on South Granville Street, features 10 sculptures from the master of surrealism.

Step inside the gallery and you’ll see many of Dali’s familiar painterly tropes, now in three dimensions.  There are, of course, several dripping clocks, hung from the branches of trees.  Another sculpture consists of a giant snail with wings, a tiny warrior poised on its back.  There’s a piano with can-can dancer legs, a metre-high thumb with branches sprouting from the tip and a bevy of angels in ecstatic poses.

The collection at the gallery represents 10 of 29 sculptures in the Dali Sculptural Collection.  All were made using an ancient technique known as the lost wax process, which gave Dali the flexibility to mould his subjects into unconventional shapes.
