Statue of Jesus Has Human Teeth

The statue of Jesus as the “Lord of Patience,” kept at the church of San Bartolo in Cuautlalpan Mexico, was gruesome enough before an art restorer subjected it to x-rays. That’s when the blood-drenched figure of a suffering Jesus was discovered to have an unexpected feature: its teeth are human. See for yourself:

The teeth are unlikely to be relics, and were probably donated for use in the statue when it was made in the 18th century.
