Point of Interest for Dali Paris
The Space Elephant

The Space Elephant

Made by Salvador Dali in 1980, the sculpture of the Space Elephant is one of the top attractions in Dali Paris. It is the embodiment of the Dalinian symbol of 1946, which is when the artists painted “The Temptation of St. Anthony.” Taking his inspiration from the painting, Dali made this sculpture, which shows an elephant with almost invisible spindle-like legs. These show the contrast between fragility and strength. It shows the creature moving through space towards heaven, thereby symbolising a flight of fantasy.
