Well, this actually makes a lot of sense. As the story goes, the Dutch painter allegedly cut off his own ear after a dispute with fellow artist Paul Gauguin, and gave it to a whore at their favorite brothel. "The tortured artist Vincent van Gogh can now be tortured just a little bit more," reads the doll description. "We have to admit this is an uncommon doll, but Vincent van Gogh was pretty uncommon, himself."
