Van Gogh's ear re-created

June 4, 2014

A German museum has displayed a copy of Vincent van Gogh’s ear that has been grown using genetic material.

The DNA for the new ear was provided by one of the 19th-century Dutch artist’s living relatives.

After collecting and multiplying the DNA they used a 3D printer to resemble the ear of Vincent van Gogh.

Gogh is said to have cut off during  in 1888.

Van Gogh is recognised a one of the world greatest ever artists. His art work sells for millions of dollars.

The exhibition, at which visitors can speak into the ear through a microphone, lasts until July 6.
