This is what Shakespeare's face looked like

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

According to scientists: 3D or not 3D? Scientists recreate warts-and-all 'image' of Shakespeare... but have they got the right man?:
Scientists have used state-of-the-art 3D computer technology to create what they say is the first true likeness of William Shakespeare.

The image shows every wrinkle on the playwright's face and the figure's haunted stare is radically different from existing images which purport to be of the Bard.

Clarke's team have also produced 3D likenesses of Napoleon, Julius Caesar, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

The recreations are based on scans taken from death masks - and in some cases masks made during life.
