Description

Through the 'Eternal' collection, the British artist Damien Hirst presents a series of motifs that can be read as emblematic of the cycle of life, rendered eternal in Lalique crystal.

Eternal Sleep depicts an adult skull whose forehead is decorated with the shape of an inverted teardrop around which smaller shapes cluster in a petal-like formation. This image recalls one of Damien Hirst’s most renowned artworks, For the Love of God (2007), a platinum skull featuring 8,601 pavé-set diamonds.

Here, Hirst combines the imagery of classic memento mori with inspiration drawn from Aztec skulls and the Mexican love of decoration, as well as their attitude towards mortality.
