Hirst used a life sized platinum cast of an 18th Century human skull , covered it in 8,601 diamonds and inserted the original teeth into the sculpture.

A pink diamond on the forehead completes the work.

The title of the piece comes form one of Hirst's mother's favourite comments 'For the love of God, what will you do next?' .
