Eternal Sleep (Black)-Damien Hirst-1

Eternal Sleep depicts a human skull, a reminder of the inexorable passage of time. The edition acts as a distinctive statement of intent. It has been imagined, sculpted and perfected through hundreds of hours of work, using the mastery of the lost-wax process. “Out of this world, celestial almost. It proclaims victory over decay. At the same time it represents death as something infinitely more relentless. Compared to the tearful sadness of a vanitas scene, the skull is glory itself." —Rudy Fuchs
