This edition is part of Hirst’s series of Psalm prints, which stem from his larger gloss paintings featuring butterflies. The work plays with different notions of value and the confluence of the material and the spiritual in religious, commercial and artistic realms. The print is suitably - and typically for Hirst - provocative. “Verba mea auribus” is from Psalm 5, which translates to “listen closely to my words.” Like much of his work, Hirst introduces polemic questions to provoke debate. The vivid blue butterfly wings are separated in a mandala-like pattern, which references Cathedral stained glass. The butterfly wings serve to suggest the unity of the heavenly and earthly realms and the notion that beauty lies even in death.
