According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing the potential power of such beings, Zeus split them into two separate but incomplete beings, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.

That's a famous photo of icthyologists posing in the reconstructed jaws of the giant prehistoric shark, Megalodon. I don't know when the photo was taken, but as you can tell from the clothes, a long time ago. With yellow acrylic paint for the jagged lines.
The title was inspired by the fact that those reconstructed jaws no longer exist. They were found to be inaccurately large: we now think the maw of Megalodon was more like four feet.
Time eats everything, eventually.
