Archie the mammoth has his teeth polished and rinsed by J.R. Elkins (left) and Preston Painter of G&M Window Service.
The spring teeth cleaning was part of an annual bath and wax that helps keep the Columbian mammoth sculpture looking its best when greeting visitors to the University of Nebraska State Museum at Morrill Hall. The recent removal of Archie’s Husker-branded mask has allowed those visitors to gaze into his mammoth maw for the first time since July 2020.
