Hirst- Some Comfort Gained from the Acceptance of the Inherent Lies in Everything

I chose this piece by Hirst because it is, to me, the most interesting. A bull and a cow are sliced equally and placed interchangeably to create this piece. Focusing on the idea that, "there is no ontological difference whatsoever between the human and the animal", Hirst, I believe, is trying to show that we are all indeed the same no matter the species. A bull and a cow are from the same families but broken down and showcased, one can't spot differences between them (the usual lay person).
