The dead, baleful eyes of the sheep you see before you are just the beginning of the horrorshow that is artist Damien Hirst's latest artistic effort. His exhibition at the Lever House, titled School: The Archaeology of Lost Desires, Comprehending Infinity, and the Search for Knowledge, opened a few weeks ago and will run through February 16th. The piece contains, per the Times, "30 dead sheep, one dead shark, two sides of beef, 300 sausages, [and] a pair of doves." And a partridge in a pear tree.
