Kill Yourself

Eugenio Merino has caused some controversy after creating a effigy of Damien Hirst called For the Love of Gold depicting (what some call) the master financial strategist shooting himself in the head while wearing a T-shirt with the 100 million dollar diamond encrusted skull. The mediums used for the piece included human hair, and actual blood pouring out of the wound, Eugenio Merino created the piece in reference to the diamond skull...I guess controversy sells because the piece was immediately purchased by a Florida collector for 33,500 dollars. Gotta love it.
