Yu Qian’s Tower of Teeth

We've previously posted about the Tooth Stone of Elkhart, Indiana, which is a large, concrete block full of human teeth.

Along similar lines is the Tooth Tower of Yu Qian in Beijing. It's a large sculpture made out of 28,000 human teeth.

If I come across any more sculptures made out of human teeth, I'll be sure to add them to this list.

At least, unlike the previous suspect, he has a reason for it. Not a good enough reason, perhaps, but a positive reason.

I first thought that tower was to raise awareness to human right abuses and the treatment of prisoners in China. God only knows how many teeth have been lost due to torture over there.
