If You Love Vincent Van Gogh, You'll Lose Your Mind Right Now

Few of us could ever afford an original artwork by Vincent van Gogh, but thanks to Canadian site 'Today Is Art Day' now you can have the legendary artist all to yourself!

They've created a five-inch figurine of the iconic artist, complete with cute replicas of his most critically acclaimed works 'Starry Night' and 'Sunflowers'. But whilst Vincent van Gogh is famous for his remarkable paintings, he's also widely known for bizarrely cutting off his own ear.

This act of self-harm dates about to sometime around Christmas 1888, where he severed his left ear lobe with a razor blade in a fit of hysteria and lunacy. Things became increasingly surreal when he wrapped the severed ear in a rag, walked outside and presented it to a prostitute who promptly fainted.

With that in mind, no Vincent van Gogh figurine would complete without some type of tribute to such an unusual story. This particular toy actually features a removable ear - the same side Van Gogh sliced off all those years ago.

There do say there is a fine line between genius and insanity.
