Appendix and Appendage


Temple (2008) by Damien Hirst,  London,  August 2017


This ‘Temple’ of a body stands 21-feet tall, weighing in at over 3 tonnes and made of painted bronze. It presents an anatomical model of a male torso with the musculature and organs exposed.

It is the work of Damien Hirst and featured in some of his solo exhibitions, including ‘Requiem’ in Kiev in 2009 and ‘Cornucopia’ in Monaco in 2010).  It is now on display on  Callum Street in East London, close to Leadenhall Market.
