Lot description
This unique drawing of a skull and butterflies was drawn by Damien Hirst for the current owner in a copy of Hirst's catalogue for the 'Romance in the Age of Uncertainty' exhibition. The work was produced in 2003 making it a very early example of the use of this iconography - Hirst's famous skull sculpture 'For the Love of God' was only produced in 2007.

The drawing is in excellent condition.
