Lobster Telephone
Salvador Dali, 1936

Surrealist artist Salvador Dali wrote of wanting to know why, when he ordered lobster in a restaurant, the waiter never brought him a boiled telephone.

Dali brought this fanciful idea into the material world in his Lobster Telephone, melding a plaster-cast sculpture of a lobster (a recurring theme in Dali’s work) with a common telephone of the day.
