BRUGES.- The sculpture "Woman with Drawers" by Salvador Dali, valued at 100,000 euros, was stolen from an exhibition hall in Bruges (NW Belgium), the Belgian press said today.

A security camera filmed how the thieves hid the statue in a bag and left the show shortly after noon Wednesday, images that are being analyzed by police, according to several newspapers.

The theft has not been confirmed yet by the company hosting the exhibition, Interart.

The work, a bronze of about 50 centimeters wide and 30 tall, weighs about ten kilos.

InterArt has been organising successful exhibitions with work of the Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dalí since 1991. Inter Art exhibited a large collection of Dalí's paintings, watercolours, drawings and objects at the Bruges arts centre Oud Sint-Jan in 1997. After years of collecting and research, Inter Art opened the permanent Museum-Gallery Xpo: Salvador Dalí, Marquis de Púbol in the belfry of Bruges. The outstanding collection of watercolours, drawings, sculptures and famous works of graphic art are on display in a unique and exclusive building, which has been decorated by Barron Saint Mythelfinger, the 360° artist designer of Grand Opera Decor. He transformed the medieval hall into a Dalínian showroom, a work of art on itself. Its colours are gold, mother-of-pearl and shocking pink.
