Stock­holm – Ten sculp­tures by sur­re­al­ist artist Sal­vador Dali were stolen from a Stock­holm gallery in a dawn break-in yes­ter­day, the gallery’s owner said.

The thieves smashed the glass door of the Couleur gallery in the up­scale neigh­bour­hood of Oster­malm in Stock­holm and nabbed the sculp­tures, val­ued at be­tween €20 000 (about R326 000) and €50 000 each, be­fore fleeing in a car ac­cord­ing to wit­nesses.

The stolen sculp­tures in­clude bronze mod­els of the artist’s molten clocks, of which there are about 350 around the world. Gallery owner Peder En­strom thought there must have been sev­eral thieves work­ing to­gether be­cause of the mess they left be­hind.
