This guilotine blade is the one that beheaded Marie Antoinette in 1793.
It was purchased from the executioner’s family.
It can be seen on display at Madame Tussauds was museum in London.
Marie Antoinette’s last words as she climbed onto the guillotine platform were “Pardon me sir, I meant not to do it” after accidentally stepping on her executioner’s (Henri Sanson) foot.
An 18th century statue of the Lord of Patience in San Bartolo Cuautlalpan, Mexico has human teeth, specialists restoring the artwork have discovered through X-rays. From BBC News:
"The teeth were probably donated as a token of gratitude," suggests head restorer Fanny Unikel. Elsewhere in Mexico, parishioners are known to have volunteered their hair to make wigs for saints, as well as clothing or money. But the teeth and nails of statues are usually made of bones and animal horns. "It’s the first time human teeth have been found in a sculpture," says Unikel.

THE ATACAMA “ALIEN”
Ata is a tiny skeleton (6 inches, 15 cm) found it a Chilean desert. It hosts a variety of strange features: It has only 10 ribs, while most humans have 12. It has a cone shaped head, but researcher believe this is due to turricephaly.
Genetic results showed the skeleton of human origin so Ata is definitly not extraterrestrial but 9% of the DNA did not match the human genome. Many said that it maybe a fetus, but the fact that it had mature teeth and developed bones hints it was at least 6-8 years old.
Some explanations are that Ata was afflicted with an extreme case of dwarfism or suffered from an extreme case of progeria.
