BRUSSELS- A chandelier sculpted by Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali and unveiled in 1998, one year before the artist's death, is to be sold at auction in Antwerp on 28 April.

The five-metre tall, 20-tonne object was first presented during 1989 ceremonies in Tel Aviv celebrating the 50th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel.

The DVC auction house managing the sale said its current owners had chosen to sell the work in Antwerp, which counts a large Jewish community, in order "to sign a link between east and west, for cultures, communities and religions."
