Squidess Archie update

Statue of Giant Squid
The giant squid at the Natural History Museum has proven so popular that there's now a waiting list of two months to visit her. An interesting "art" angle I missed before: Mollusc Curator Mr Ablett says the Museum contacted Damien Hirst's "group" for help in finding a company that could make the 30ft tank needed to house Archie.
N.B. Damien Hirst isn't an artist any more; he's a group! I must admit I never thought he was an artist. Dead cows in formalin! Come on! Pull the other leg, Damien.
