This project is inspired by the surrealist Salvador Dalí, and his famous painting “The Persistence of Memories”.
Rather than making a Lego copy of the whole painting,
I decided to recreate its most iconic element, the Melting Clock.
- The highlight of this model is the “fluidity” that Lego bricks can achieve.
From the melting clock face, to the dripping pillars and the pooling, I want a model that makes Lego bricks look like flowing liquid.
- The model also gives the fun illusion of a floating clock face.
This is achieved by supporting the clock face with the “dripping” pillars, and the “pooling” as base.
Alternatively, it would also be a cool display feature to detach the base, and mount the melting clock on a wall.
This model does not have time-keeping function yet.
In the official set, I hope Lego would make this a working clock.
It would be so cool if this can be both a beautiful display, and a working LEGO Clock!
I have included a few color variants here.
Which color set is your favorite? Tell me in the comments :)
For a real set, I think Lego could decide on a best palette, or include multiple color-combinations so fans can choose their own favorite~
