Damian Hirst Skull

Damian Hirst Skull

Damian Hirst is at it again, this time in the form of a human skull encrusted in diamonds.

It is a platinum cast of a skull from an actual person that lived between 1720 and 1810.

He was supposedly a 35 year old man from Europe. His teeth are still showing, but Hirst has covered the rest of him with 8,601 diamonds that are of course ‘ethically sourced’…it’s all part of the art!

Hirst’s diamond skull is on the market for about 15 million pounds and you can view it at the White Cube gallery in South London.
