Anatomy of an Angel is a limited edition of 50 resin sculpture by contemporary artist Damien Hirst. The signature, title and edition number are etched into the resin by the artist.
This work is a miniature version of Damien Hirsts original, classically posed Carrara marble sculpture Anatomy of an Angel. The angel is based on Alfred Boucher’s sculpture ‘L'Hirondelle’ (1920). In Hirst’s version, cross-sections of her body show the anatomical structure beneath the skin, revealing she is human after all.
