The 1.15 metre high bronze with Dali’s melting clock motif is valued at €1,125,000.  The fluidity of time is represented in this sculpture as time not only moving, but dancing in rhythm to the beat of the universe. Over 300 works, including 90 large outdoor sculptures, will be on display throughout the grounds at Castlemartyr. There are works by artists like Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst alongside Irish sculptors like Patrick O’Reilly, Eamonn Ceannt, Ian Pollock and Bob Quinn.  Open daily from 11 am to 7 pm the show runs until June 23.
