Investment, not art

An update on yesterday's story. Apparently, Damien Hirst is part of the investment group that bought his diamond skull for about 100 million USD.
The sale keeps Hirst in the news, reinforces the demand for his work and makes everyone who spent money at White Cube feel good about their investment. This is all about investment, not about art collecting.
