An 18-carat gold Kate Moss (our "modern-day Aphrodite") in this contorted pose, a sleeping giant's head, Hirst's famous display of skulls? If I can't make it - please tell'll be going?

  • @ Kara There are a couple variables there though.
    1. The artist may be playing a trick on your eyes making you stare at it longer to compare shadow to subject!
    2. The angle of the shot doesn't show the the detail of the foreground subject.
    :0P I love it.
  • um... Take a look at "dark stuff"... I doesn't work. If you look at the branchy things and the shadows... they don't fit. really. Look!
