damien hirst diamond skull

Titled ‘For the love of God” this diamond encrusted skull, a work by artist Damien Hirst, is on sale for a whopping $98,000,00 US.

This work as art, in life & death, is amazing & i’d love to hold this in my hands. To quote the artist…

“I remember thinking it would be great to do a diamond one — but just prohibitively expensive,” he recalls. “Then I started to think — maybe that’s why it is a good thing to do. Death is such a heavy subject, it would be good to make something that laughed in the face of it.”
