A German museum has put on display a copy of Vincent van Gogh's ear that was grown using some of the Dutch artist's genetic material. The Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe says the replica ear consists of living cells grown from samples provided by Lieuwe van Gogh, the great-great-grandson of Vincent's brother Theo. The museum says Lieuwe and Vincent van Gogh share about 1/16th of the same genes, including the Y-chromosome that is passed down the male lineage. less
