GEM ROUTINE Peter Fuss's skull
Love skulls and diamonds but don't have $100 million to spare? Never fear, the Damien Hirst skull knockoff has arrived!
On June 21, Hirst became the world's most expensive living artist, when Lullaby Spring—essentially a neon pill cabinet—sold to an anonymous bidder at Sotheby's for $19.2 million. Unfortunately, his record-breaking sale still hasn't helped him find a buyer for his $100 million, diamond-encrusted skull piece, For the Love of God. Not even George Michael had enough faith to go through with the purchase.
But consumers in search of a more affordable sparkly human head need look no further than Polish artist Peter Fuss, whose
For the Laugh of God is made of a plastic skull covered in shards of glass and missing a tooth. For only $2,000 (and only $2 for a graphic print of the work), Fuss's skull is fine art for the masses.
