Artist Regrows Van Gogh’s Ear Using His DNA

Artist Diemut Strebe made a living replica of Vincent van Gogh’s ear, grown from genetic samples provided by Lieuwe van Gogh, the great-great-grandson of Vincent’s brother Theo. They share about 1/16th of the same genes, including the Y-chromosome, passed down the male lineage.
