For the Love of God (2007) Created by Damien Hirst. In 2007, art historian Rudi Fuchs, observed: ‘The skull is out of this world, celestial almost. It proclaims victory over decay. At the same time it represents death as something infinitely more relentless. Compared to the tearful sadness of a vanitas scene, the diamond skull is glory itself. I'm going to use this as my template for my 'amused to death' skull.
