Exhibit by Damien Hirst

Chatsworth House. Decadence, delight, drama and beauty. A living wonderland each December!

Get ready to enjoy the decorative arts and go crazy in the stables! Splash out on the wine, the mince pies, the roast dinner, and don’t dare leave without purchasing your peacock feathers and cast-iron keys!

Feeling the world on her shoulders?

This lovely hound sleeps by Endymion, a handsome shepherd in Greek mythology, kissed each night to sleep by the moon goddess Selene. To embrace him forever, Selene asked Zeus to grant him eternal life, which he did and put Endymion into eternal sleep. I love these stories!
