Diamond-Encrusted Skull Sells For Cool $100 Million

Connosieurs say the shock piece makes a "powerful statement"
about gluing a lot of gems to objects; the piece is said to be a
"groundbreaking" and "audacious" use of the Bedazzler

The piece is called, quite appropriately, "For the Love of God." Some call it "pretty fucking stupid if you think about it, and even if you don't." Well, that's a paraphrase, but some art-types sort of see through this as the stunt it is, noting it's nothing more than an "outrageous" concept which is fairly easy to actually execute. And the work was actually done by the artist's technicians. He just comes up with the "concept."

Which, in this case, consists of gluing some things to other things.

Hirst slapped a 50 million pound price tag on it. At Crosblog, you'll be annoyed to know he got his asking price yesterday.

This Just In: I just made my debut into the world of avant-garde art by gluing a spatula to an old funked-up copy of Juggs. It's meant to be an ironic commentary on sexuality. And cookware.

I'm asking, oh, let's not get too crazy right out of the gate... six buck.

It's Not Even A Real Skull:

The skull, cast from a 35-year-old 18th century European man but retaining the original teeth...

How ghey.

For $100 mil, you'd at least think you were getting a real skull. How are you going to get ass from sixteen year old Goth whores when it's not even a real skull?
