Sculpture by Damien Hirst 2009 

Today sharing with you outrageous piece of bling art by contemporary sculpture artist Demian Hirst, This sculpture called “For the love of God” produced in 2007, the artwork is made out of casting of a man scull from the 18th century in platinum, then was set 8601 flawless diamonds with head line pear-shaped pink diamond at the center of the forehead.

Total diamond weight in total 1,106.18 carats, costing £14 million to produce, it was priced in the highest price for a artwork of living artist 50£ and strangely was bought by the artist himself (with some partners).  

The artwork is a contemporary Memento mori (from Latin meaning “remember that you will die”) artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.

By far most flashy and extravagate death we’ve seen yet!

 

Something to think about!
