<b>Dali Sculptures Marbella places of interest Malaga</b>


Salvador Dali (1904 – 1989)
Dalí was born in Figueras, Catalonia, on May 11, 1904. He was one of the leading figures in Surrealism and everyone has heard of the eccentric artist with his distinctive moustache or knows something about his works of art.
Here in Marbella along the Avenida Del Mar you will find a complete collection of sculptures by Dali which were bought by the Marbella government to complete the work on the then dilapidated and abandoned Alameda Park and has now become a nice place to sit and relax and considered by many, to be one of the most beautiful areas of Marbella.
Another place where you will see a piece of work by Dali is at the entrance into Puerto Banus on the Cristamar roundabout. A three ton statue of a rhino was donated to Marbella to commemorate the centenary of the artist´s birth. Dali was inspired after a visit to the Vicennes Zoo in Paris and then created the sculpture in 1956 after he filmed one of his surrealist movies. The piece is called ´Rinoceronte vestido con Puntillas´ (Rhinoceros dressed in lace) and you cannot help but notice this impressive piece of work as you make your way into the marina area of Puerto Banus. It is certainly an eye catcher!
