2D method of facial reconstruction – Karen Taylor

Karen Taylor in the USA developed a 2D method involving drawing over a frontal image of the skull. This process included the addition of tissue depth pegs to the skull prior to taking the photographs. Images of the April Lacy case (1982) from Oklahoma City, courtesy of © Karen Taylor.

3D bust of Ivan the Terrible, Tsar Ivan IV (Gerasimov, 1955)

Dr. Mikhail Gerasimov pioneered research into facial anthropology and developed the technique known as the anatomical method. His research had a significant influence on current facial depiction practice, and focused on an understanding of facial anatomy and the importance of muscle structure and position for the production of a recognisable likeness.

3D manual method of facial depiction from skeletal remains

The ‘manual method’ is a term applied to a depiction process involving materials such as clay or wax applied by a sculptor onto a skull or skull replica. Initially tissue depth pegs are attached to the skull, then the facial muscles are sculpted following anatomical standards and finally soft tissues and skin are added and aged appropriately to create a finished depiction.
