Surely, all you art-geeks out there have been wondering when someone would take Salvador Dali’s fanciful representation of clocks featured in his famous “The Persistence of Memory” and turn it into a reality. Well, be informed that the design team at Can You Imagine have turned this common dream into a reality. They have produced a small, simple desk clock, which presents the huge advantage of fitting on almost any type of surface.
The two-pound novelty time piece is sold on Amazon from only $9.99, postage and packaging not included. It features a chrome-plated case, a precision Quartz mechanism and, in spite of its whimsical shape, can attain perfect balance no matter where you choose to display it. It is battery-operated and sure to liven up visits at your house, as it will most definitely act as the starting point of many a conversation on art, the fleeting nature of time and human existence, not to mention kitsch. It’s an excellent gift for any art aficionado you may know, especially if they’re keen on spending more hours than necessary at their desks. It acts as a small, yet powerful and efficient reminder that time never returns, and the hours of a day can sometimes be better spent in other ways than hard at work.
