Item description for For the Love of God: The Making of the Diamond Skull by Damien Hirst...

This book is a creative guide to the making of arguably the most extraordinary art object to be made in the 21st century. Published to accompany the 2007 exhibition "Damien Hirst: Beyond Belief" at White Cube, it gives a fascinating pictorial insight into how Hirst's diamond skull piece "For the Love of God" was conceived and produced.

Illustrated with candid behind-the-scenes photographs by Johnnie Shand Kydd, the book includes a number of preparatory drawings by Damien Hirst and a fold-out image of the diamond skull.

Accompanying this is an essay by the art historian Rudi Fuchs, who writes, "The skull is out of this world, celestial almost. I tend to see it as a glorious intense victory over death." A number of leading experts in the fields of archeology and dentistry have also contributed detailed studies on the diamond skull, including analyses of its age and ancestry.

Reviews - What do customers think about For the Love of God: The Making of the Diamond Skull?

Muy buen libro  Jul 24, 2008
Este libro, por los contenidos del proceso de creación de la obra del autor británico, se transforma en un documento imprescindible como testigo contemporáneo del quehacer investigativo plástico que se debe tener. Recomendable sin lugar a dudas. Gracias. Ricardo
This book SUCKS  Feb 23, 2008
I was fascinated by photos I'd see of the skull and bought this book because it was supposed to describe the creation of the incredible work of art.

This book spends a majority of it's time on the age, shape, condition, teeth, and place of origin... OF THE REAL SKULL... not the jeweled creation. The discussion of diamonds is basically some drawn diagrams that explores the atom structure of diamonds. Who cares about atom structure?

There are a few great photos of the final creation, but nothing about the actual work that took place to create a platinum skull, setting the diamonds, etc.

Sorry to say this, but I recommend that you pass on this book.
