      For the Love of God (2007) Created by Damien Hirst. In 2007, art historian Rudi Fuchs, observed: ‘The skull is out of this world, celestial almost. It proclaims victory over decay. At the same time it represents death as something infinitely more relentless. Compared to the tearful sadness of a vanitas scene, the diamond skull is glory itself.

      Best thing I’ve read all week; The Believer - Gold, Golden, Gilded, Glittering "Like the men of Wall Street, Damien Hirst is a creator of astronomical value, seemingly out of nothing. The diamonds on the Hirst skull were reportedly worth 23.6 million—the rest of the work’s value was created, overnight, in the assemblage. For the Love of Godapplies the technique of a leveraged buyout not only to a work of art but as a work of art."

      # A diamond skull Damien Hirst’s infamous diamond-studded skull – the world’s most expensive piece of contemporary art – will be displayed in London for the first time since 2007, when it was reportedly sold for a hefty £50m. The piece, entitled ‘For the Love of God,’ will sit pretty in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall next year in the first UK survey show devoted to the 46-year-old artist. The skull itself is cast in platinum but retains the original teeth of the 18th century owner, and boasts 8,601
