The work is part of a series of sculptures that reproduce, in the third dimension, both the style and the most salient themes of the master of Surrealism Salvador Dalì. Indeed the exaltation of the plastic values of the subject and the inflated volumetric rendering correspond to the exaggerated hyper-realistic plasticism of the paintings, with a perfect rendering of every single detail. The composition is based on a strong quotationist component which, combined with the mechanical writing process, gives life to a completely surreal entity, coming from an unconscious and dreamlike dimension. Dalì's interest in the Rhinoceros consisted in the fact that the artist was of the opinion that the ideal logarithmic spiral was enclosed in its horn, the most perfect shape present in nature. In this sculpture, we can see how the artist's interpretation, although not far from reality, manages to give it a visionary image. In fact, the figure of the animal is so detailed, covered by a fantastic armor, full of protrusions and recesses, that it is also surreal.
