It must be very impressive since it's 20ft high and weighs 10 tons. Hirst cast it in bronze and painted it to look just like the original - a £14.99 child's toy for teaching basic anatomy. Impressive it may be, but is it art? What does it mean? At first sight it seems to be the opposite of what Walter Benjamin wrote about in 1935. Any piece of art can easily be mass-produced. But, he says, when we do mass-produce things it devalues them. Then we start to value things uncritically. Works of art end up as valueless commodities. It makes life superficial.

Perhaps the famous modern art collector should be pickled by Damien Hirst and auctioned off to raise money for a battered women's refuge? Does anyone have any other ideas???

Write and tell me what you're all up to. Cheers, Kathy
