Mouth as Inspiration

I chewed a dummy until the age of seven.

My childhood memories include sensations within my mouth.

I was always curious about my grandma's gold teeth and could not understand that it represented the decay of life.

When we eat, we not only swallow food but also sculpt forms in our mouth.

Sometimes eating is more than digesting; it relieves anxiety and celebrates happiness.
