Damien Hirst Crystal Skull

So something I didnt mention in my last post, was the crystal skull which is titled "For the Love of God." The piece is made from an platinum cast of a human skull which is encrusted with 8,601 diamonds. The piece also contains human teeth.Unfortuanatly, this piece was returned back to its owner 1 week before I visited the Tate Modern.

Apparently, the inspiration for the title  comes from Hirst's mother who once said "For the love of god. What are you going to do next?"
