Damien Hirst first came to public attention in London in 1988 when he conceived and curated 'Freeze,' an exhibition in a disused warehouse that showed his work and that of his friends and fellow students at Goldsmiths College.

The Dead (Chocolate Oriental Gold Skull) (2009) continues Hirst's glorification of the skeletal, linking itself closely to his acclaimed 2007 work, 'For the Love of God'.
