The world's most expensive skull

Damien Hirst is a British artist, not so common. His works usually deal with death, and has always been surrounded by controversy. What we did recently was to use a skull into a work of art to platinum and diamond-encrusted 8601 costing the overwhelming amount of 99 million dollars!. He says he was inspired by an Aztec skull that he saw in his childhood.

Hirst called his work “For the love of God,” I do not know why so called, but no doubt, is what comes to mind when I return to read the price he put on his work. This book is intended to be, according to Hirst, “the final victory over death, as can be achieved in terms of decoration, because our society loves money and wealth.” Surely, this world is very materialistic. What things could I do with all that money? Let your opinions.
