Damien Hirst Virtue cup and saucer

Rollover image above to zoom |

item code: 12596

Porcelain espresso cup and saucer based on Damien Hirst's Virtue – a kaleidoscopic arrangement of butterflies. The distorted anamorphic image printed on the saucer reflects in the plain metallic espresso sized coffee cup to display an image of the artwork.

Damien Hirst is the most prominent artist to have emerged from the British art scene in the 1990s. His role as an artist and curator has proved fundamental in the development of the group that became internationally known as the YBAs (Young British Artists). Hirst’s work asks viewers to question the main dilemmas of human existence: birth, illness, death and religion.

Cup measures 5cm diameter and saucer 12cm diameter.

Not safe for use in a dishwasher or microwave.
