retrospective of his work at the Tate Modern. In the 1990s, Hirst exemplified British avant garde art. The most famous work was a shark suspended in a vat of formaldehyde. As can been seen in the Tate show, death is the recurring theme. Like the encrusted skulls of the Aztecs, Hirst created a modern Bling version with rhinestones. This Aztec skull is at the British Museum, while Hirst's "For Love of God" is at the Tate.
