People have strong reactions to this piece. First, they want to reach into the hole because it is so soft and mysterious but then they feel they shouldn't because of the social taboos about touching things that aren't theirs. Those that overcome this resistance are rewarded by the cool, smooth irregularly shaped objects they feel inside. When they take out a few of the objects to see what they actually are, they experience a strong feeling of surprise and revulsion. But I've noticed that I need to replace nearly all the teeth each time I exhibit this piece so at least a few people like them enough to steal them.
