Lot description
This is an original silkscreen with glazes and diamond dust by world famous artist Damien Hirst entitled 'For the Love of God'. The piece is hand signed and numbered by the artist in white pencil. The art is beautifully framed in a contemporary matt black frame.

Damien Hirst’s For the Love of God diamond skull stands amidst the genres of art, history and religion as an unprecedented and conspicuous totem of death. Petrified into their settings, do the diamonds attempt to pay indulgences to God, as the title and lavish exterior suggest? Or is its creation a memento mori reminding us of the evanescence of human life? Does the skull defy or submit to death?
