This iconic piece, known for its melting clocks, is rumoured to have been inspired by a surrealistic dream. Dalí, known for his flamboyant personality and eccentric artistic style, claimed that the idea for this painting came to him accidentally. The fluidity of time depicted in this masterpiece continues to intrigue and perplex viewers, making it a celebrated work in the realm of surrealism.

Pollock, the master of Abstract Expressionism, stumbled upon his signature style by accident. While experimenting in his studio, he spilt some paint on the canvas and found beauty in the chaos. This accident birthed his famous splatter and drip technique, which revolutionised the world of modern art.

This ancient Greek statue, famous for its missing arms, wasn't always incomplete. Legend has it that the arms were lost during a scuffle between French and Turkish troops over its possession. The statue’s armless state, however, added to its mystique and made it a symbol of classical beauty.

Another masterpiece by Pollock, this painting was created with his unique drip technique. The chaotic and vibrant energy of the painting, a product of an unplanned process, has captivated audiences and cemented Pollock's place in art history.
