A shark for $8 million?

Here's "artist" Damien Hirst's shark sculpture SAC's Steven Cohen paid $8 million for. It will be exhibited at the Met for the next 3 years. They're hoping everyone will forget about the salacious female hormones for traders episode at SAC, and that Andrew Tong won't spill any secrets.

It's called a sculpture for a reason. The first shark wasn't properly injected with formaldehyde and it disintegrated, and was replaced. So if you think your meal at the Ithaa at the Hilton Maldives, is expensive-it's not.
