I decided to create a bespoke Damien Hirst leather clutch bag for the delacyonline Etsy store inspired by this famous art work –
“The Physical Impossibility Of Death In The Mind Of Someone Living” – Tiger shark, steel, glass, 5% formaldehyde solution, 1991 by the British artist Damien Hirst.
The shark is hand cut in metallic gunmetal & perforated grey leather, which were then inlaid into the surrounding turquoise leather. The nude leather was then sewn over the top creating the reproduction artwork for the front of the clutch bag. This bespoke leather clutch which will never be repeated is now available from delacyonline.etsy.com
This may well be the first of a small range of bespoke art bags.
