The present piece, mischievously released in an edition of 666, depicts supermodel Kate Moss in a macabre, archetypal fashion. The side profile of Moss' visage is rendered to show the muscular anatomy of the face sans flesh. The image first appeared on the Spring 2009 cover of TAR magazine, an art and culture publication.

About Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst (British, b. 1965) is a contemporary, conceptual artist, best known for his role in the Young British Artist (YBA) movement of the 1990s. Always revolving around themes of mortality and science, his artistic practice varies widely—from dead animals submerged in formaldehyde to pristine, ominous medicine cabinets to multi-colored paintings of butterflies and spots. He was awarded the prestigious Turner Prize in 1995, and has had over 80 solo exhibitions and 260 group exhibitions worldwide at the Gagosian Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, Tate Modern, and more. His work currently resides within the collections of the Tate and the Hirshhorn Museum.
