Otzi - Tut - George
Photography is only about 150-years old and although good portraits can be found of people taken about 100-years ago, really good portraits much older than that are nearly non-existent. However, with recent advancements in computer modeling technology it is possible for scientists to start with mummified remains or even an accurate painting of George Washington and produce a 3-D likeness that is most likely very accurate to the original.
Enlarge the picture and imagine viewing someone from another time as they were at a point in their lives. What would you say if they could talk?
Fascinating, isn't it?
