Matthew 6:19

Priced at 98 million dollars, this piece of contemporary art is an actual human skull encrusted with more than 1,000 carats of diamonds.

This piece, titled “For the Love of God” went on display in London back in February. Denying that was an expensive gimmick, the artist (Damien Hirst) said that he wanted it to represent hope, “wealth against death” and “the ultimate victory over death”.

If you ask me, this is the ultimate expression of “you can’t take it with you”, no?
