An Artist Made a Sculpture of David Bowie’s Natural Teeth
Sure, people are going to pick sides of which David Bowie they love the best: Ziggy Stardust, the ‘80s ‘Let’s Dance’ Bowie or perhaps even his most recent iteration with 2013’s ‘The Next Day.’ But would you be prepared to answer which toothy David Bowie smile you prefer? One German artist took a firm stance on the matter in her new sculpture.
Jessine Hein unveiled her most recent sculpture on her Facebook yesterday (Jan. 5), and it’s a remarkably close recreation of David Bowie’s natural teeth before the iconic singer upgraded to the straight, pearly white grin he sports today. Check out the sculpture below:
The sculpture -- which looks like something you might find in an orthodontist’s office -- was hand-sculpted by Hein with denture acrylics, plaster and acrylic paint.
