This brainchild of Jay Jopling, an influential British art businessman, former husband of the artist Sam Taylor-Wood and chief patron of young British artists needs no introduction. Besides that, Jopling is a close friend of Damien Hirst. With his financial support of his friend, Hirst created his axiomatic artworks The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (five-meter tiger shark in a tank of formaldehyde) and For the Love of God (diamond-encrusted skull for £14 million).
