Salvadore Dali's Beating Heart Brooch

Salvador Dali did more just paint! He was a photographer, furniture maker and, new to me, a jewelry maker! This is a brooch he made for the Queen of England. The heart is made of rubies, gold and other semi-precious stones. Its mechanical beating pump gives life to this surrealist treasure. AMAZING!


  1. i dunno what's more eerie, the beating heart, or the voice of the woman saying "beating heart"...
