Damien Hirst’s ‘The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living’ (1991) was first shown in the Saatchi Gallery and later nominated for the Turner Prize. The work features a tiger shark in a glass tank of formaldehyde.   It was sold for nearly £7million in January 2005.

Damien Hirst can be seen in Art Craziest Nation beside his own work in the company of Jay Jopling, Larry Gagosian and Sam Taylor-Wood. Hirst's Butterfly Paintings are also featured.
