Born Unseen is the title of a tooth wall that could easily pass as the sculptural trophy of a serial killer. Instead, it was created by Mithu Sen, an artist who's work is often categorized as highly sexual. In this case, however, the tooth wall would be deemed highly creepy. Continually pushing boundaries, this sculpture is full of details and subtleties that will force people to stare at it much longer than they originally intended.

Measuring a cool 80 feet in length, the tooth wall hides little figurines of people, skulls, toys and more that are roughly the same size as teeth. These souvenirs will resonate with viewers in different ways, especially when considering how they are displayed.
