Amazing Colosseum Carved into Tooth by ILLUSION CO.LTD.

A Colosseum is a large building, like a stadium or theatre, which is used for entertainment, sports and others. The picture shows once such ancient amphitheater in Rome, but it is neither carving nor real tooth, it is simply a CGI, i.e. computer generated imagery. The ‘colosseum tooth sculpture’ was in fact a part of toothpaste advertisement campaign for Maxam, the design of which was envisioned by agency JWT Shanghai.

As you can see the original two pictures in the image section below, the idea of this toothpaste advertisement campaign was to convey this “Roman Civilization Cavity”, i.e. not to let germs settle down on your teeth, or else you will have to end up with such a “Colosseum” cavity.

The two CGI sculptures related to Civilization-Egypt and Civilization-Rome.
Therefore, the CGI picture neither shows a real tooth, nor a colosseum carved into it. It is not so amazing fact, but a good health campaign nevertheless!

When Mark Twain’s cat, Bambino, disappeared, the author posted the following lost cat flyer around the neighborhood:

Large and intensely black; thick, velvety fur; has a faint fringe of white hair across his chest; not easy to find in ordinary light.

… and other literary pets

Calling the overall human experience “poignant,” “thought-provoking,” and a “complete tour de force,” film critic Roger Ebert praised existence Thursday as “an audacious and thrilling triumph.” “While not without its flaws, life, from birth to death, is a masterwork, and an uplifting journey that both touches the heart and challenges the mind,” said Ebert, adding that while the totality of all humankind is sometimes “a mess in places,” it strives to be a magnum opus and, according to Ebert, largely succeeds at this goal. “At times brutally sad, yet surprisingly funny, and always completely honest, I wholeheartedly recommend existence. If you haven’t experienced it yet, then what are you waiting for? It is not to be missed.” Ebert later said that while human existence’s running time was “a little on the long side,” it could have gone on much, much longer and he would have been perfectly happy.
