The story: Dalí honours Newton for his discovery of the law of gravity, symbolised by the famous falling apple, represented here by a metal sphere attached to a line, thus losing its capacity for regeneration. To represent this transformation, Dalí pierced the sculpture with two large holes: one that shows the absence of Newton's vital organs, while the other clearly displays the lack of spirit.
