Sometime between 1940 and 1950, Dr. Joseph Stamp lost his German shepherd named Prince. Like many people who loved pets, he wanted to create a memorial plaque for the dog. However, unlike others, he used his craft and over time collected thousands of human teeth that he put into a block of stone that he then placed in front of his desk.
Dr. Stamp practiced dentistry for 60 years until his death at the age of 88 in 1978. During this time he extracted thousands of teeth which he kept with the help of chemicals in barrels. kept in the basement of his office. It seems that even the teeth that were removed after the brick was created managed to find a place in this “masterpiece”. It seems that the addition of new teeth was already, for the local children, an event that the little ones were looking forward to!
In the brick, there are all kinds of teeth, incisors, molars, canines, teeth blackened by cavities, small broken pieces of teeth. Not even the dentist’s current relatives know why he chose such a strange way to celebrate his love for the dog.
In any case, the people of the city have almost all childhood memories with this brick, they played on it, or even dug their teeth and took them out of it to scare their friends.
