Artworks often bewilder us and it is astonishing what people consider to be artworks these days. It seems that anyone with a chainsaw or sledgehammer can quickly make a piece of art.

10. The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living
Damien Hirst preserved a dead tiger shark and called it The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living. Its sale contributed significantly to Hirsts’ financial success and valued at £215m, according to Sunday Times, he was Britain’s wealthiest artist in 2010. In 2007, Hirst also successfully sold “Lullaby Spring” in 2007 at Sotheby’s in London for £9.65 million.
