Facial reconstruction accuracy test (Von Eggeling, 1913)

Facial reconstruction accuracy test (Von Eggeling, 1913)

Von Eggeling, a German anatomist, produced the first accuracy study. Facial sculptures of a subject were produced independently by two sculptors using plaster replicas of a skull and soft tissue measurements provided by Von Eggeling. These sculptures were then compared to a death mask of the subject: Image A = death mask, image B = skull, image C = depiction 1 by Bergemann-Konitzer, image D = depiction 2 by Elster.
