Human teeth in a statue – level 1

27-08-2014 15:00

This news is from Mexico. Experts study a statue. It is a statue of Christ. They x-ray the statue. They find something interesting. There are human teeth inside the statue.

This is very rare. Usually, people used animal bones for a statue’s teeth. People also donated hair and clothes for statues in 18th century. They made statues look realistic.

Difficult words: x-ray (to take picture with a special machine which lets you see through things), rare (special), donate (give).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
