Designer Damien Hirst Creates Some Expensive Controversy

 - Jan 12, 2011   Updated: Aug 17 2011
Damien Hirst has had a fascination with creating skull sculptures for a long time. Regardless, these are no traditional skull designs.

Damien Hirst is accustomed to using diamonds and expensive material to make his work stand out. His latest creation called 'For Heavens Sake' involves actual baby skull covered in over 8,100 diamonds.

The skull design has sparked controversy around the world, especially to mothers. Though a little touchy, the piece is definitely different, even for Damien Hirst.

Implications - The skull fits in with Hirst's 19th-century pathology collection, which features a series of eerily grim body parts. The skull is apparently that of an under two-week-old baby.
