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