Salvador Dalí Action Figure Lets You Style His Famously Eccentric Mustache

Salvador Dali Action Figure Dali Mustache

First and foremost, modern master Salvador Dalí is renowned for his avant-garde approach to art. On top of his outlandish oeuvre, however, the Spanish surrealist is also known for two other eccentricities: his recurring melting clock motif and his zany mustache. On a mission to “make art and art history more fun,” Today is Art Day kept these quirks in mind when creating their Salvador Dalí action figure.

Clad in a lobster-red jacket and pin-striped pants, this 5-inch-tall figurine showcases Dalí's statement-making style in a big way. As he leans on his signature cane, the tiny artist shows off his melting clock, which is loosely draped over his arm in homage to his most famous painting, Persistence of Memory. Though this accessory is eye-catching, it is overshadowed by his over-the-top facial hair, which comes in the form of three interchangeable mustaches.

On top of these fashionable accoutrements, the Dalí toy also comes with a tiny easel used to display five quirky canvases: The Persistence of Memory, Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War)As You Like ItGalatea of the Spheres, and Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate One Second before Awakening.

Along with fellow modern painters like Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav KlimtRené Magritte, and Frida Kahlo, this Art History Hero is a perfect plaything for people who love unconventional action figures and artists alike.

You can pick up this Dalí doll and other artist action figures in the My Modern Met Store.
