The remains of the legendary Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali will be taken out of his grave on Thursday evening, following a plea of fatherhood by 61-years old tarot card reader.
Dali, who died in 1989 at the age of 84, is buried under a crystal dome at the Dali Theater Museum in Figueres, northern Spain, about 150 kilometers from Barcelona. The grave is located in the former theater stage.

The release of the remains will be held tonight, after the closure of the museum. According to representatives from the Dali Foundation, it is not known how long the process will last.

“We oppose the decision,” said Amira Prada, spokeswoman for the museum and the Dali Foundation. “We appealed to the court, but we have yet to receive an answer, and we submitted an alternative schedule because the decision was supposed to take place in the morning. We proposed to do so after hours of operation and the proposal was accepted.”

The woman who claims that Dali was her father, Maria Filler, was born in 1956. According to Filler, her mother had an affair with the painter in the 1950s, while working for his family. But is struggling to get recognition as the daughter of Salvador Dali since 2007, According to the Spanish newspaper “Spain El Pais”.

“I know this because my grandmother told me,” she said, a month ago, after the Madrid court ordered the body removed from the grave to examine her claim. “The only thing that can determine whether I am the daughter of Salvador Dali is DNA testing.” The court ruled that DNA testing was necessary for a genetic comparison between the woman and Dali since there were no DNA sources of Dali that survived.

Dali had no children and he left his works – estimated at 300 million euros – to the Spanish government.

The fund’s representatives did not know how long the results would be for the tests but said they would be ready for the next court meeting in September.
