Got a friend that is hard to buy for because they already have “everything”? Here’s something I bet they don’t have: a diamond encrusted cast of an 18th century skull.

The work of artist Damien Hirst, it sold recently for $100 million. The skull is encrusted with 8601 diamonds, including a substantial pink diamond in the center of the forehead which, all by itself, is worth over $8 million.

Oh, by the way. The teeth are the real thing.
