SERVE THE FIENDS

"For the Love of God" is a sculpture by artist Damien Hirst produced in 2007. It consists of a platinum cast of an 18th century human skull encrusted with 8,601 flawless diamonds, including a pear-shaped pink diamond located in the forehead that is known as the Skull Star Diamond. The skull’s teeth are original, and were purchased by Hirst in London. The artwork is a memento mori, Latin for “Remember your mortality” or “Remember you must die”, referring to a genre of artworks that vary widely but share the same purpose: to remind people of their mortality, an artistic theme dating back to antiquity. Costing £14 million to produce, the work was sold for £50 million.

    Hirst titled the piece “for the love of god” because that’s what his mom said the first time she saw it.
