Van Gogh's Ear Regrown

Artist Diemut Strebe used genetic samples from the great-great-grandson of Theo Van Gogh to 'regrow' brother Vincent Van Gogh's ear and put it on display in New York.

You know, one just like the one Vincent sliced off for a strumpet. Though some say Vincent lost the auricle in a sword fight with Paul Gaugin.

But we digress.

Franken-Gogh's ear floats eerily in a hermetic box and is kept 'alive' by a network of hoses and fluids.  And guess what?  The damn thing can actually hear, thanks to a microchip that stimulates nerve pulses.

No mention if Strebe plans to grow the rest of Vincent back...that would probably be wrong though, right?
