Crowns and all

The Hidden Meaning of Teeth

The Idea:
Teeth are an essential part of our anatomy needed to sustain life and our identities. Teeth also have many metaphorical and paradoxical meanings that deserve further investigation. This publication uncovers the history, meaning, and culture behind teeth.

The Inspiration:
Crowns and All addresses the mystery of the teeth paradox, which says that Teeth symbolize both life and death, as they are present in both the living and dead. They aid in our survival and represent vitality, but also decay and mortality.
