Perpetual provocateur Damien Hirst unveiled his latest masterpiece this week--a 19th century human skull cast in platinum and encrusted with 8601 diamonds (weighing in at over 1100 carats, but who's counting?). Titled "For the Love of God," the piece is priced at $100 million, which, if sold, would be the highest price ever paid for a contemporary artwork. London-area jewel junkies can worship the sparkling skull in person--it's a part of Hirst's current exhibition (June 1 - July 7, 2007), "Beyond Belief," at the White Cube.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
