Twelve Apostles - The Watcher (72/250), 1978
26 x 19 in
The apostles bear no names. Identification has been made by examination of the images for symbols associated with each of them. More weight has been given to tradition than to theological scholarships because Dali would not have been aware of the latter. The image of a woman’s face with 12 tiny figures in her hair cannot be that of an apostle. It has been called “The Watcher” and may represent what Dali Called “the piercing gaze a Gala.” In the Knights of the Round Table the piece has been given the name “Knights of the Realm”.
