The name Damien Hirst arguably rings a bell with ardent art admirers. Do you remember his 60-foot-tall headless sculpture that was curated in 2014, and unveiled in 2017? Well, that unearthed recently and made it to the devilish desert of Las Vegas.
Interestingly named Demon with Bowl, the artsy masterpiece now occupies prime real estate amidst the glistening pool at the Palms Casino Resort, and is now an integral element of the hotel’s new club Kaos which spans 102,000 sq ft.
The massive 65-foot bronze statue was part of Hirst’s extensive 2014 exhibition entitled “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable” at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice.
Damien Hirst has been an influential figure in the transformation of the Palms Casino Resort. From masterminding the 9,000 sq ft Empathy Suite, to the 60 foot tall bronze statue, Hirst’s contribution to the property equates to a $620 million renovation.
