Canadian artist Kirsten Zuk has incorporated a piece of John Lennon's tooth into a new clay model of The Beatles icon.
The tragic star's tooth was sold off at the Omega Auction House in Stockport, England last November, prompting dentist Michael Zuk to snap up the molar for a whopping USD 29,783.
The die-hard fan gifted the piece to his artist sister Kirsten Zuk, who then decided to feature it in a new sculpture, and now it is set to go on display at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival in Alberta, Canada, reported Contactmusic.
"I love John Lennon - I've been a huge fan all my life. This is like a time-capsule. It will contain his DNA," said Kirsten Zuk.
