The Face of Genius

Behold the face of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Hat tip to The Roving Medievalist.

Scientists using computer programs have reconstructed the face of Bach from his skull. Here's the link. As I said in the combox at Roving Medievalist, this is cool. I'd love to dig up a few more people and see what their faces really looked like (Shakespeare comes to mind, and to heck with the curse on his grave.) although this is not the best of reasons to go digging up someone's bones....
