£10 million for a dead shark in a tank?!

Modern artist Damien Hirst is surely going to be celebrating this week, after selling about 50 of his pieces at Sothebys for a total of £70million, including his famous "Kingdom" piece - a dead tiger shark preserved in a tank of formaldehyde.

The question I have is where would you want to display this in the house?! A bit much for the lounge, a bit disturbing for the kitchen. It might work in the bathroom I guess, at least people wouldn't linger too long in the bath...!

Anyone who is tempted by something similar though hasn't left it too late, as the auction continues today and tomorrow in Sothebys - check out the collection:
