At the bottom of the Indian Ocean lies @damienhirst's 'Sun Disc' from his latest Venice show, 'Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable'. Sharks, skulls and, now, shipwrecks. After almost 10 years and millions of pounds, Hirst's new project is his most grandiose yet. Mythical beings and coral-encrusted creatures in gold and marble, retrieved from the sea floor, explore themes of myth and fact, death and immortality, and the ambiguity and value of art itself.
