Conceived by Damien Hirst and executed by Lalique glassmakers, the ‘Eternal’ collection is a series of crystal sculptures and panels. The limited edition works depict a selection of the artist’s most recognisable motifs, such as the cross, dove and butterfly.
The series was first established in 2015 with the creation of the butterfly crystal works Love, Hope and Beauty. New additions to the collection draw upon other Hirst artworks, notably, the diamond-encrusted skull, For the Love of God (2007) and the winged heart, The Immaculate Heart – Blind (2008).
The works will be on display until 22nd October at Lalique’s Paris store (11 rue Royale). Discussing the collection in 2015, Hirst stated: "It’s amazing being able to use all the expert craftsmanship [...] of Lalique for something new, and the results are beyond all my expectations".
