Real human teeth in this statue

Wow. I'd totally donate my hair for a statue of the Blessed Virgin. Not sure if anybody woud want a brunette, though.

Brunette depictions of the Blessed Virgin seem so much less common than blonde ones. Plus, my hair is REALLY dark, but not black, so it wouldn't work even for a Mexican or Japanese statue.
