Nobility of Time – London

This is a picture I took four years ago in downtown London, Westminster Bridge.

It is one of Salvador Dali’s inspired statues of the melting clock called “Nobility of Time”, built in 1977 from bronze.

The statue is about a clock hanged on a tree with two figures on the sides; an angel on the right, and a woman on the left. The clock has a crown on the top that signifies the time’s power over human and all creatures.

I mostly liked how the clock looks like it is really melting, I was very curious to know the meaning behind it. It looks as if it shows that we cannot redo our actions in life.

Such a masterpiece!
