Damien Hirst’s “Verity” Statue Erected in the UK
Damien Hirst has angered a number of locals by erecting his controversial “Verity” statue near the North Devon town of Ilfracombe. The gigantic 20-metre tall bronze pregnant women is defined by two elements with one one side a skeleton and an exposed womb, while the other side a sword-wielding figure. News of Hirst’s 20-year loan ‘gift’ was received with 100 letters of objection and 177 letters of support of the artwork, the North Devon Council approved of its construction earlier this summer and the statue was installed on October 16.
