“This is fantastic! If you want to bathe, you pick up your radio-phone and call for your captain. Momentarily there will appear in the sky a special helicopter which can create a vortex. At your will, there is released from the helicopter a miniature water spout which we can pilot where we wish. The waterspout comes down and cleanses your body. It contains special cleaning substances so that we bathe without a bathtub, no receptacle and no other device. We are now fresh and clean. The helicopter goes away and we go out to dinner. ” As a cosmetic appliance, Dalí’s Liquid Tornado Bath Tub epitomizes luxury and convenience. The graceful female nude descends from a helicopter, combining Dalí’s interest in technology and sexuality.

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain. From an early age Dalí was encouraged to practice his art, and he would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989.
