QUESTION: Could you enlighten me as to how you reached that conclusion ??

Answer
I have been in the Dali business for many years. Your piece is a Known FAKE. You can send to to have it authenticated, it will cost you $$. I am saving you the trouble.  Go to google and type in  cosmic athlete fake dali  and you will see what I mean. The first site that comes up talks about it, about 3/4 of the way down the page.

Expertise

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
