View Full Version : New facial reconstruction of Akhenaton ( KV55)

New facial reconstruction by the FAPAB Research Center team in close collaboration with the renowned expert Cicero Moraes. A fundamental role in the interpretation of the sources has been played by our Coordinator of the Egyptian and Near East Studies, Dr Michael Eduard Habicht, who joined the Center in early January this year.

The work has focused on the reconstruction of the face of KV55, a now skeletonized mummy which over the years has been attributed by some to Pharaoh Akhenaton and considered the biological father of pharaoh Tutankhamun.

While several theories exist and conflicting arguments will always characterize the debate on KV 55, using the available anthropological evidence we have chosen to focus on the facial traits of this individual.

"The reconstruction, which took months to design, was created by scientists at the Forensic Anthropology, Paleopathology, Bioarchaeology Research Center (FAPA) in Sicily. They worked closely with Cicero Moraes, a 3D forensic artist from Brazil who is known for his work reconstructing faces from the distant past, FAPAB representatives wrote on Facebook. Unlike previous facial reconstructions of KV 55, the new model omits hair, jewelry and other adornments, in order "to focus on the facial traits of this individual," according to the post.

Looks more Eurasian than expected.

Looks somewhat similar to Tutankhamun reconstruction, radically different to Akhenaten's statues though.

I appreciate the effort to include asymmetry in these models, which is the norm for all humans.
