"a jubilant message"

So light as to transcend the earth's gravity, angels are a lyrical expression of Dali's world of dreams and fantasy - in fact, Dali once said "nothing is more stimulating than the idea of an angel"! From the end of the 1940s, when the artist began weaving strong religious themes into his artworks, angels appear frequently in his oeuvre. In this beautiful sculpture, the Dalinian angel trumpets his divine music, wings spread, head thrown back, sending his jubilant message to all who will listen.
