In this image provided by Courtesy Science Ltd and Jay Jopling/White Cube (London), Artist Damien Hirst’s platinum cast of a human skull is shown covered with 8,601 ethically sourced diamonds and is estimated to be worth over $98 million. Titled ‘For the Love of God’, the original skull was examined by forensic experts, who concluded that it was male, probably of European origin and about 35 years old at the time of death. Radiocarbon analysis suggests that he lived some time between 1720 and 1810. (Photo by Prudence Cuming Associates Ltd via Getty Images)
