A Is For Art...

...of an unusual sort.

These photos were taken at an Art Exhibit at the Coventry Herbert Art Gallery & Museum last month. Exhibit titled - Wasted.

Dental records were at one time an important means of identification.  That for the most part has been replaced with DNA identification.

Artist Gina Czarnecki found a use for these dental casts which cannot be disposed of in landfill.

At the time I visited the Museum I found this exhibit interesting but a tad unsettling.

The only reasons I am posting this today is because I had a disaster of a day at the dentist. I am okay but disappointed.  No luck in blocking the pain thus my tooth couldn't be removed. I had so hoped that the saga would be over.

Here is the plan.  I'll let you know when the drama is over. Thank you all for your kind thoughts expressed recently. Appreciated. In the meantime, look after yourselves and see you tomorrow for Thatched Roof Thursday :).

How awful to be suffereing from toothache. When I was a teenager my mother told me I ought to have all my teeth out and have false ones just like she did at that age!Like many teenagers I fortunately took no notice of the advice.

I do love the sense of humor of the artist—nice photo of the "teeth".

I must say that is one exhibit I can really sink my teeth into!

A bad toothache is one of the most unpleasant experiences in this life...hopefully you can get relief soon!

I hope you will get through the pain of this tooth.

Interesting concept of the wall of teeth.

Well I had a little bit of fun with this posting and I appreciate your comments. I am feeling better today. Antibiotics are kicking in. Thanks you for your kind words.

Fun60 - Wow, have all your teeth out - sounds pretty drastic. Bet you just decided to brush instead :).

Lowell - You got it :).

Tanya - Hugs received!
