Homage to Newton 向牛頓致敬

This abstract bronze sculpture by the world-renowned Spanish Surrealist is, as its name suggests, a tribute to Sir Isaac Newton. The ball in the middle of the figure’s torso purportedly represents a falling apple, alluding to Newton’s discovery of gravity.

世界著名的西班牙超現實主義者的這個抽象青銅雕塑,正如其名,暗示是對艾薩克·牛頓爵士的致敬。 人物軀幹中間的球據稱是一個落下的蘋果,暗指牛頓發現引力。

Salvador Dali Figueras 1904-1989 Figueras Homage to Newton Bronze with dark patina Signed and numbered 5/8 Cast in 1985 388 x 210 x 133 cm In the 17th century, Sir Isaac Newton discovered the law of gravity. Legend tells us that origin of this most important and fundamental physical law was initiated by the falling of an apple, represented in the present work by the ball falling from the right hand. Salvador Dali, one of the most important surrealist artists, takes the liberty to go even further in paying homage to Newton by opening up the torso of the figure and suspending the heart to indicate “open-heartedness” . The open head represents an “open-mind”. These are two necessary qualities for the discovery of important natural laws as well as for success of all human endeavours.
