They have re-grown Vincent Van Gogh's ear, based on genetic material provided by a descendent, and put it on display, in Germany. "I use science basically like a type of brush, like Vincent used paint." Well, not exactly.
This is one case where I really wish it turns out to be a hoax. First off, isn't it the wrong ear (see below)? Or maybe not, since Vincent probably painted this using a mirror.
