Marketwire.comA Canadian man who purchased one of John Lennon's teeth at a celebrity auction last year will see part of it be turned into a work of art for a good cause. Dr. Michael Zuk's sister, artist Kirsten Zuk, fashioned a sculpture of the late Beatle while incorporating a piece of the tooth.
Dr. Zuk says in a statement, "John Lennon gave his tooth to a fan in good spirit so I wanted to do a few things that would raise awareness of the charity Smile Train, so we are asking people that come to view the sculpture at the Kirsten's Art Show this weekend in Edmonton to consider making a donation, which helps children with cleft lip and palate."
Zuk adds, "The house that Lennon lived in when he had the tooth removed just came up for sale at a reported 15M British pounds, so anything Lennon is almost priceless."
