Damien Hirst

"The Hours" Spin Skull sculpture has a form of a synthetic skull, made of mixed media. The skull is painted in a marbled spin pattern using a variety of household gloss paint colors; the eye sockets are inlaid with watch dials. The skull and watch dials are symbolic of impermanence of life and could be considered as Hirst's invitation to the existential meditation. "The Hours" Spin Skull has an open space at the top for the Hours' album, "See the Light".
