Nefertiti (and Other Beauties)

Nefertiti: Drawing Board Beauty
Nefertiti's chin, mouth, and nose, and the uraeus cobra are placed along the vertical axis of the face. The nostrils are exactly one finger distant from each side of this median line; the outer ends of the eyebrows are three fingers from the median line and the center of each ear is four fingers,

That seems correct. Just take a Nefertiti image, superimpose a regular grid, and you can see that her facial features fall upon gridlines.

(Click for full face. Non-gridded face here.)

Each eye is three squares wide, with the iris being one square in width. The nose is four squares wide, and the corners of the eyes are separated by four squares. In fact, the nostrils and corners of the eyes form a perfect square. I don't think this was done for numerological reasons -- it's possible the artisans of the time used a simple grid system to record and convey portraits.

Dude looks like a lady?

Nefertiti Resurrected (NOT!)
Remember that documentary on the Discovery channel in which "scientists" reconstructed Nefertiti's face based on her actual mummy?

Didn't you think that the face had a "manly" quality to it? I sure did. The producers of the CBC series Disclosure probably thought so too. They did some DNA tests, and discovered that the mummy actually belonged to a man.

CBC informed the Discovery bigwigs that the purported Nefertiti mummy was really a man-mummy. Of course, they were completely ignored:
When versions of Nefertiti Resurrected went to air recently in the United Kingdom and Canada, there were no new elements added.

An old site that's still good for a re-read. It's an in-depth scientific investigation of the characteristics of beauty, based on computer generated images of faces.
Virtual Attractiveness: A remarkable result of our research project is that faces which have been rated as highly attractive do not exist in reality. This became particularly obvious when test subjects (independently of their sex!) favoured women with facial shapes of about 14 year old girls. There is no such woman existing in reality! They are artificial products - results of modern computer technology.

I notice that there's a shortage of sackbut babes. The sackbut industry should take notice, and recruit more hot babes before it reaches the point where nobody knows what a sackbut is.
