Damien Hirst's greatness

It is not that hard to get a skull from a dead man from the XIXth Century, to cover it with metal and then with brilliants. Harder is to sell it as a masterpiece of art, to convince the media that it is awesome, to organize a hedge fond in order to buy what you have produced, and then to get a retrospective both in the Tate and in Doha. That's Damien Hirst's greatness.

These skulls cost a few dollars in San Ángel.
