This sculpture was born of Dalí's respect for Sir Isaac Newton and his discovery of the law of gravity, represented by the famed falling apple. Dalí has pierced the figure with two large spaces: one which portrays the absence of Newton's unique physical body, while the other space clearly displays the lack of his singular mind. Dalí implies that the living being, Newton himself, has become a mere symbol, stripped of his individuality, as his incredible and revolutionary laws of motion obscure all personal details relative to the great scientist. These incredible contributions to science are Newton's legacy..
