$100 million Skull to be exhibited in Hermitage

St.Petersburg Hermitage is to exhibit $100 million diamond-encrusted platinum skull by Demien Herst in May.
      
      Though the most expensive skull in the world called For the Love for God has already found its first purchaser, Demien Herst is to show it to the whole world first and the $100 million piece of art will be exhibited in the best world museums.
      
      The Hermitage spokesman is sure the skull will be showed to Russian audience for two weeks in May 2008. Its not clear yet, whether the British artist himself assists at the exhibition but the presence of the most-paid artist in the world can only double the interest. The Hermitage is not sure what is worth neighboring such an exhibit.
      
      For the Love For God is a human skull covered in 8,601 flawless diamonds, including one 52-carat pear-shaped whopper of a stone in the middle of the skull's forehead. The piece has a stunning £50 million price tag. The teeth for the skull cost $14 million.
