The “Eye of Surrealistic Time” in Salvador Dalí’s own words:
"The first idea I ever had about the Eye of Time, I know it well: with it I made a jewel for the Owen R. Cheatham foundation. A jewel representing a large eye, and in the its pupil you can see the wheel-work of a clock and the lens which must preferably belong to someone who has never drunk any liquor, for the bottom must be blueish and pure, like an aquamarine, without the stigma of a liver complaint. The hands on the clock dial move in slow motion because liver complaints accelerate the pulse of life, as Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim know as Paracelsus, proved in his book on the combustion of the stomachs, (one could devote, at this juncture, ten pages to Paracelsus, the father of hermetic medicine, born in Einsiedeln, Switzerland in 1493 and who dies in Salzburg, Austria in 1541, to his doctrine of correspondences between the outside world and the various parts of the human body, especially to the combustions of stomachs).
