Damien Hirst - Butterflies

Damien Hirst produced another series of artworks that employed exotic butterfly wings adhered to gloss paint. The pieces are inspired by stained-glass windows, and some of them do have an ecclesiastical feel to them.
I'm rather ambivalent about the use of real butterflies in this way, but the point of Damien Hirst is to be provocative and challenging in his work, and they certainly work on that level. I would have to say that they are also rather beautiful in their own way - art museum pieces rather than one on my wall though.
