Vincent Van Gogh - Live Replica Of Van Gogh's Severed Ear On Display At German Museum

Museum officials in Germany have unveiled a replica of Vincent Van Gogh's severed ear, grown using the artist's family Dna.

The 19th century painter sliced off his left ear in 1888 and now bosses at The Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe have put a copy of the gruesome organ on display.

The replica, the work of artist Diemut Strebe, is made from living cells grown using genetic material provided by the great-great-grandson of the Dutch master's brother, Theo.

Strebe claims she wanted to combine art and science with the macabre piece, and she hopes to display it in New York next year (15), according to the Associated Press.
