Montegrappa Salvador Dali Rollerball Pen -18kt GoldAuthorized by the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalk Limited Edition of 19
Salvador Dalk produced a number of significant works so original and startling that they have entered the global consciousness. Among the most famous is his 1944 work, Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening, which has inspired Montegrappa's designers to devise a pen worthy of Dalk's vision. It was the first of a number of works to contain a form, which would become a recurring image in Dalk's work: The Space Elephant.
Montegrappa's designers have transformed these noble beasts, portrayed ‘with long, multi-jointed, almost invisible legs of desire along with obelisks on their backs' into miniature manifestations of Dalk's art. On the Dalk pen, the elephant embraces a barrel of malachite for this gold version.
The pens are packaged, appropriately, in an egg-shaped container, in recognition of another Dalkesque image. For the artist, the egg symbolized hope and love.
This project has been supervised and licensed by the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalk, the cultural institution created by Salvador Dalk himself in 1983.
