Facial Reconstruction of Santa Rosa de Lima by Cícero Moraes


Varipon Institute writes:

The face of the first saint of the New World may be better known than ever, thanks to a team of scientists that has analysed the skull of Saint Rose of Lima.

Scientists from the University of Saint Martin de Porres in Peru and the Brazilian Anthropological and Dental Legal Forensics Team reconstructed her face and the faces of two other saints who lived more than 300 years ago.

Mr. Cícero Moraes was one of the main members of the Ebrafol, Brazilian Team of Forensic Anthropology and Odontology that reconstructed the face of Rose of Lima and Martin of Porres, in Peru. He worked in other projects of facial reconstruction with the Catholic Church. He is a Brazilian 3D designer, whose work in open source programs like InVesalius, Blender and MakeHuman has become a reference in the field of forensic facial reconstruction in his country.
