Description

Dalí, the great Surrealist master, selected the image of Lady Godiva as one of his favourites, and pays homage to her sensuous and shapely female form through the conception of this sculpture.  Announcing her arrival, butterflies not only hover around her and her noble steed, but also adorn her body as she plays her trumpet.  Lady Godiva embodies earthly beauty, whereas the butterflies depict the ethereal otherworld.
