    About The Work

    The diamond encrusted skulls in Damien Hirst's For the Love of God stands amidst the genres of art, history, and religion as an unprecedented and conspicuous totem of death. Petrified into their settings, the diamonds could serve as an attempt to pay indulgences to God, as the title and lavish exterior suggest, or perhaps the work is a memento mori, remind us of the evanescence of human life. Does the skull defy or submit to death?
