Edition: 10 + 3 ap. Technique: collagraphy Paper: 300g hahnemuhle The Battle of Waterloo in 1815 led to the death of over 50,000 young soldiers providing ample access to young teeth. Most teeth stolen from corpses on the battlefield ended up in England as "must-haves" among the wealthy toothless. Waterloo teeth became a familiar term, which was also used for teeth sent to Europe after the American Civil War in the 1860s. < https://www.odont.uio.no/studier/ressurser/studentprosjekt-protetikk/historikk/
