This year, the Cannaught hotel in Mayfair has presented a Christmas tree designed by Damien Hirst. The tree is decorated with various medical supplies from pills to syringes to scissors to medicine bottles. The items on the tree are moulded into Christmas imagery; the strings of pills become snowmen or are decorated with the word 'Noel'. The star on top of the tree is created with scapels placed together in a star shape. 


According to Hirst, he used medical supplies to decorate the Christmas tree to symbolise the hope that science and medicine can give to the world (1). Additional photographs of the tree and close-ups of the decorations are pictured below.
