Time stands still; life and beauty, death and chaos are frozen in crystal: The Eternal Collection is a series of sculptures and panels rendered in exquisite crystal in a collaboration between British artist Damien Hirst and Lalique.

World exclusive presentation of twelve works from the ‘Eternal’ collection: sculptures and crystal panels created by Damien Hirst and crafted by Lalique’s master glassmakers. The presentation of these exceptional pieces is the culmination of four years of research and innumerable conversations between Hirst and Lalique, combining the creative expertise of both artist and craftsmen.

The themes are that which have remained central to Hirst’s work since the late 1980s. In this collection, the British artist presents a series of motifs that can be read as emblematic of the cycle of life.

Developed over a number of years through exchanges between the artist and the crystal workshops, this project has given rise to a series of exceptional pieces. Eternal Sleep depicts a human skull, a reminder of the inexorable passage of time, whilst Eternal Truth presents a dove carrying an olive branch. Eternal Belief features a constellation of coloured capsules insert into a cross; Eternal Sinner illustrates the sinuous curve of a serpent in a triptych of panels. Eternal Cross slices with open scissors, Eternal Immaculate depicts a dagger through a heart in flight.

Masterful Technique and Meaningful Intent

The sculptures each act as distinctive statements of intent. They have been imagined, sculpted and perfected through hundreds of hours of work, using the mastery of the lostwax process; a traditional technique revived by the craftspeople who work at the Lalique workshop.

Limited Edition

Each limited edition piece features the engraved signature of the artist and comes complete with a signed edition certificate.
