It appears now he's moved up the ladder a few more rungs after netting $100 Million for his Platinum & Diamond encrusted skull called "For the Love of God"
Artist Damien Hirst’s platinum cast of a human skull, titled “For the Love of God,” is covered with 8,601 ethically sourced diamonds. Forensic experts concluded it was male, probably of European origin and about 35 years old at the time of death. Radiocarbon analysis suggests that he lived sometime between 1720 and 1810.
