I always like a bargain when taxidermy shopping. Sotheby's London is keeping its fingers crossed that a lot of people appreciate a taxidermy mark up. A whole slew of Damien Hirst's prized formaldehyde-soaked carcasses (and medicine cabinets and paintings and marble statues) hit the block on Sept. 15. The crowning jewel of the sale: The Golden Calf, a little white cow with 14K gold horns and an angelic gold disk in a big ole tank. It can be yours for an estimated £8 million to £12 million. The "Damien Hirst: Beautiful Inside My Head Forever" catalog went online today.
Anatomy of an Angel (estimated to go for £1 million to £1.5 million)
Transience Painting 1 (est. bids: £400,000 to £600,000)
