"Forensic sculptor Elisabeth Daynhs used tissue-depth information to lay clay over plastic skull models. She then added layers of fleshlike silicone, estimating the kings eyebrow thickness and approximate shape and size of the nose, lips, and ears."

 

 

 

 

But note the above photo of an ancient sculpture of King Tutankhamun. In my opinion, this skull is far more elongated than the modern forensic rendition (Photo by Jean-Pierre Dalbéra).

 

 

 

 

Here is a photo of an ancient Egyptian sculpture depicting Tut's sister (By Corbis). One gets the feeling that these royal family members are not quite homo sapien.
