- Jon Hill investigates the new sculpture
The iconic angel figure is made from Carrera marble and combines aspects of classical sculpture with science and anatomy.
Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965 and grew up in Leeds, attending Allerton Grange High School. He went on to study at Leeds College of Art (then Jacob Cramer College) in the early 1980s.
Anatomy of an Angel will be displayed in Victoria Leeds until Sunday, 29 September 2019.
Six other works by Damien Hirst will be on display during the festival, on Briggate, in Leeds Art Gallery and at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield.
