Salvador Dali Sundial

Up above Rue Saint-Jacques in Paris is a curious sundial designed by artist Salvador Dalí. An original work that very few passer-by notice!

Created for artist’s friends who owned a shop at the 27 rue Saint-Jacques, the shell face is meant to reference the scallop symbol of the pilgrimage of St. Jacques de Compostella, for whom the street is named

Savador Dali unveiled his work on Novembre 1966, and gave it to the City. You can see his signature on the bottom right corner of the sundial.
