The Iconic Toothy Smile of Teddy Roosevelt

From The Day Book, Chicago, Illinois, January 10, 1916:
An Aztec T. R.
This statue was carved centuries before the real T. R. ever bared his teeth.  The figure was an Aztec diety and in its day was worshiped pretty much as thousands of this country now worship our own Teddy.  The statue was unearthed in the City of Mexico.
