(Almost) Affordable Diamond Skulls by Fabien Baron

It would be impossible to write an article about crystal skulls without first referring to Damien Hirst's diamond-encrusted 'For the Love of God' skull, but I have to say that I prefer these skulls from designer Fabien Baron.

While Fabien Baron's skulls are still expensive at $1,790 each, they're still far more affordable than Damien Hirst's £20,000,000 example. Baron's skulls are covered in Swarovski crystals and are called 'Dead or Alive.'

Implications - The title seems extremely appropriate as these skulls are totally morbid, but in the very best way. Fabien Baron has truly created a masterpiece that is going to be talked about for years to come.
