Damien Hirst’s £50 Million Diamond Skull

The excellent Supertouch blog have just released some interesting details about Damien Hirst’s latest artwork. The piece is a ancient inspired diamond encrusted platinum cast human skull (the human teeth remain), titled For the Love of God, and is a steal at £50 million. Apparently, all of the “diamonds are all “ethically sourced” from conflict-free zones and cost the artist a whopping $28,000,000 USD (the work is entirely self-financed)” [...] and Hurst is hoping that “it makes the people who see it feel good, that it’s uplifting, that it takes your breath away”. I’m sure that if you’re as skull-art obsessed as me this will have made your weekend. [via]
