Have a taste for the absurd? Look no further than the work of Salvador Dali, one of the main proponents of surrealism. His famous painting The Persistence of Time introduced to the world the concept of melting clocks, representing the mutable nature of time. This melting clock keeps good time, despite its warped look. Though time may be slippery, this clock hangs onto your shelf securely. It will give your room a cool, dreamlike quaility.
