A creepy X-ray image taken of a statue of Jesus in Mexico has revealed that the 300-year-old figure contains real human teeth - and they are all in perfect condition. The eight teeth were discovered when researchers took the X-ray as part of restoration work on the ‘Lord of Patience’ statue, believed to have been constructed in the 18th century. The teeth, which are perfectly formed all the way to the root, are believed to have been donated by worshipers out of gratitude, or as a way to get closer to the religious figure.

Bodice worn by Empress Elisabeth of Austria when she was assassinated by Italian anarchist Luigi Lucheni on the shores of Lake Geneva, September 10, 1898. Diana Vreeland points to the tear where the sharpened file pierced Elisabeth’s heart. 

I’m not sure where it’s currently held but I assume it’s at the Kaiserliche Wagenburg Wien
