Trajan is considered to be the first Roman emperor whose family was not settled in the capital of the empire but in the Spanish province. He was awarded the honorary title of «optimus princeps» (best emperor), a distinction that no emperor before or after him ever received. And he is considered Dalí's favourite emperor. This, by the way, «[...] not only because he was Spanish, [...] but because the Roman Empire was the most widespread in his time, [...] art and literature flourished and he rejected the persecution of Christians. Dalí felt spiritually connected to him.» from: Sammlerkreis für Kunst, Verband deutscher Ärzte, 28.07.1987
The sculpture of pure gold is in the tradition of medieval golden Madonna representations or Benvenuto Cellini's famous Saliera. The noble 18-karat precious metal, which Dalí chose as the casting material for his small sculpture, particularly captivates the viewer
