In addition, the helmet is mainly made of erosions of selenite, quartz and amethyst crystals, Arsham’s signature. However, the artist also added a purple amethyst stone to the helmet due to Hamilton’s fondness for this color.

The entire proceeds from the sale of the helmet would go to the Hamilton Foundation. Hamilton and Daniel wouldn’t keep a penny from the sale of this work of art in their own pockets. The sculpture is speculated to discover at the next Monaco GP.
