Blinged baby skull by Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst, the British artist has used an infant’s skull to create his latest work “For Heaven’s Sake” . The metal skull art is cast in platinum and covered with more than 8,100 diamonds by the royal jewellers Bentley & Skinner. Hirst acquired the child’s skull from which he drew inspiration when he bought a 19th-century pathology collection and it’s believed to be that of a baby who died at the age of two weeks, The Daily Telegraph reports.
