Example text

Nasal width is particularly variable. In Caucasian individuals, the general width of the bony nasal aperture is approximately threefifths of the total nasal width including the alai. Negroid individuals have a wider and more fleshy alai than Caucasians (Aulsebrook et al. 1996). Gatliff and Snow (1979) recommended that the position of the alai should be 5 mm in Caucasians and 8 mm in Negroids lateral to the lateral margin of the nasal aperture. Japanese, on the other hand, are more of the order of 5 to 6 mm (Miyasaka 1999).

Krogman tested the technique for possible use in a forensic investigation. Working with a sculptor, he attempted to “restore” the face of a cadaver whose face was known to him but not to the artist. He found the resulting resemblance to the original face sufficiently successful to warrant its use in a genuine forensic investigation (Krogman et al. 1948). Collaborative pairing of the skills of the forensic sculptor and the forensic anthropologist lay behind the most successful early attempts (Stewart 1979).
