For the Love of God, 2012
Delight in the beauty of the macabre. Skulls have a distinct role to play in Damien Hirst’s world, portraying his obsession with the inevitability of human mortality. For the Love of God is a replica of the skull of a 35-year-old man from the 13th century. The original, covered in platinum and set with 8,601 diamonds and a 52.4 carat pink diamond on the forehead, broke all records and became one of the most expensive contemporary artworks in the world. Produced in an edition of 5,000, each is signed by the artist.
