“Face” Book or “Head” Shots

There are several completely unrelated stories that have hit the news that have only one thing in common.  They are all about “heads” or faces.

Nefertiti

Let’s start with the most “Perfect” face ever – that of Nefertiti.  A Swiss art historian says she is a fake.

Now to the insane – Van Gogh’s Severed Ear:

“...A new book, published in Germany by Hamburg-based historians Hans Kaufmann and Rita Wildegans, argues that Vincent van Gogh may have made up the whole story to protect his friend Gauguin, a keen fencer, who actually lopped it off with a sword during a heated argument…”We carefully re-examined witness accounts and letters written by both artists and we came to the conclusion that van Gogh was terribly upset over Gauguin’s plan to go back to Paris, after the two men had spent an unhappy stay together at the “Yellow House” in Arles, Southern France, which had been set up as a studio in the south.”…”On the evening of December 23, 1888 van Gogh, seized by an attack of a metabolic disease, became very aggressive when Gauguin said he was leaving him for good. The men had a heated argument near the brothel and Vincent might have attacked his friend. Gauguin, wanting to defend himself and wanting to get rid of ‘the madman’ drew his weapon and made a move towards van Gogh and by that he cut off his left ear.”…”

Connie Culp is a walking miracle.  She is the woman who received the face transplant.

An “Alien Skull” has been sighted on Mars?  Okay, it looks like a skull, but what about the back of it?  It sure doesn’t look like the “first European“, that’s for sure.  Look, the alleged alien skull looks less alien than the alleged first European who looks like something out of Star Trek.
