Dali Hypercube Earrings - Inspired by he collection of The Salvador Dali Museum
This unusual cubic cross is known as a "hypercube." Mathematicians theorize that the hypercube is a geometric form which is a reflection of the forth dimension. Dali's transformation of this mathematical concept into a religious symbol indicates his attempt to synthesize the two seemingly contradictory worlds of faith and science. The most notable use of the hypercube in Dali's work is the "Crucifixion" (Corpus Hypercubus), 1954 (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York).
