About Salvador Dali Geopoliticus Child Watching The Birth of The New Man (1943) - Statue

This Parastone resin Three-Dimensional representation features the Surrealist artist's notorious work Salvador Dali Geopoliticus Child Watching The Birth of The New Man, made in 1943. Geopoliticus Child reflects the newfound importance America held for the world and for Dali. Whilst the world is on fire, Dali paints the birth of the new human. Frightened, seeking the protection of its mother, the child sees a man struggling to escape a plastic egg of which the continents drip down. Here stands the new symbol of a new order, a new beginning for a new and perfect world. The man breaking from the egg emerges out of the new nation, America, signaling a global transformation. Africa and South America are both enlarged, representing the growing importance of the Third World, while Europe is being crushed by the man "hand, indicating its diminishing importance as an international power. The draped cloth above and below the egg represents the placenta of the new nation which, as Dali shows with a drop of blood, can only be born through much pain and suffering. An androgynous older figure stands in the foreground and points to the emerging man, acknowledging the birth of this global transformation. The cowering child with its long shadow–The Geopoliticus Child–represents this new age. More details on Salvador Dali Geopoliticus Child Watching The Birth of The New Man (1943) - Statue:

    Dali
    The artist who above all others symbolizes Surrealism in the public imagination is the Spaniard, Salvador Dalí. His genius for publicity brought the word “Surrealism” to the level of a common noun in all languages. Not only Dali's art denotes that is irrational and erotic, but also mad–and fashionable. All at once, his paintings, his writings, his utterances, his actions, his appearance, and his iconic mustache celebrate his eccentricity. The Surrealists’ exploration of the human psyche and dreams reached new heights in Dalí’s extravagant works. In his paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and designs for furniture and movies, Dalí probed a deeply erotic dimension. While studying the writings of von Krafft-Ebing and Freud, he invented what he called the “paranoiac-critical method” to assist his creative process.</p> Dalí’s surrealist works are characterized by their haunting allegorical empty space where even time has ended. An eerie, never-setting sun usually illuminates the barren landscapes, with often amorphous and imaginary creatures in the foreground. Dalí rendered every detail of this dreamscape with precise control, striving to make the world of his paintings convincingly real–in his words, to make the irrational concrete.
