Throughout the 1950s, Dalí dreamed up ever more intricate and fantastical designs, besides his work was no longer included in Surrealist shows, as they had expelled him from their movement. Dali had instead begun to style himself as an artist in the tradition of the Renaissance masters:

«Paladin of a new Renaissance, I too refuse to be confined. My art encompasses physics, mathematics, architecture, nuclear science — the psycho-nuclear, the mystico-nuclear — and jewelry — not paint alone.» In Renaissance times the great masters did not confine themselves to a single means of expression. «The genius of Leonardo da Vinci goes far beyond painting. His scientific spirit comprehended the possibility of miracles in the depths of the sea and in the air, which today have become a reality. Benvenuto Cellini, Botticelli and da Luca treated gemstones for jewelry, creating extraordinary beauty ornamental cups and bowls, decorated with stones».
