More Fun With Damien Hirst

Look what Damien Hirst has contributed to the art world now: a diamond studded human skull! It’s covered with some of the world’s “most perfect diamonds,” “ethically sourced,”  and it  cost Hirst twenty million dollars to make.

“The skull says so much about the Zeitgeist,” says a contemporary art specialist at Sotheby’s. Ha, that’s just what I was about to say!

Right now, Hirst says he has almost wrapped up a sale, for $100 million. It’s a lot of money, but I think it’s much prettier than the sheep in formaldahyde. Plus, it would make an awesome pendant.

    So the Zeitgeist is “We’re all f***ing nuts and have too much money on our hands”? Ah, well, I like it better than those artists who save their own poo or urine in jars.
