A handout picture released by Damien Hirst and Science Ltd shows works of art by British artist Damien Hirst, including his 1991 piece of a Tiger shark in formaldehyde solution called “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living” which are part of the Relics show, the largest ever collection of Hirst’s work, on display at the Al-Riwaq exhibition space in Doha on October 8, 2013 following the unveiling of his latest work in the Qatari capital. The exhibition is Hirst’s first solo show in the Middle East which has been organised to coincide with the revealing of his latest piece “The Miraculous Journey” which was reportedly commissioned by the Qatari royal family – a long standing collector – for 20 million dollars. == RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE, MANDATORY MENTION OF THE ARTIST UPON PUBLICATION, TO ILLUSTRATE THE EVENT AS SPECIFIED IN THE CAPTION == NO ARCHIVES == MANDATORY CREDIT “Damien Hirst and Science Ltd” == NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS – DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS ==
