Damien Hirst's "For the Love of God"

June 1, 2007


This piece of art, entitled "For the Love of God", was created by Damien Hirst and will be on display at White Cube Mason's Yard. It's a skull made out of platinum, diamonds, and human teeth. The total thing has 8,601 diamonds and comes in at 1,106.18 carats. It's the most expensive piece of art ever created, costing between $16 and $20 million to make, and $99 million to buy. And totally worth it if you ask me. Why feed starving children in Africa when you can glue diamonds to a skull? It just makes sense.
