What Do You Think This Is? December 14, 2007Posted by Michael in News.
I know what you are thinking. You are thinking: “Holy shit! Some demented weirdo cut a cow and her calf in half and pickled them in a tank, and this is the police photo documenting the heinous crime. And Michael [you are thinking] is one sick son of a bitch for posting this freakish picture.”
You are wrong to think such things. That, my uncouth friends, is an important work of Art.
Note the hot chick behind the tank. You can tell that she’s ordinarily just a shallow coquette, because her scarf teasingly conceals her cleavage. However, at this exact moment her rapt expression signifies that she is having an epiphonic experience as she groks the Art.
LONDON – Multimillionaire English artist Damien Hirst said on Thursday he was donating four major works to Britain’s Tate Gallery, including a sliced and pickled cow and calf.
It is the first time Hirst, who recently sold a diamond-encrusted skull for $100 million, has made a major donation to a museum.
“It means a lot to me to have works in the Tate. I would have never thought it possible when I was a student,” he said.
