Facial reconstruction - In the eye of the beholder (English)
Abstract [en]

In theory, a facial reconstruction can sound quite easy. There are handbooks that describe the

process step by step and for the untrained eye all skulls look almost the same. However, this is

not the case. Every skull has it ́s unique shape and proportions which make up our significant

variations in our faces. It is what make us distinguishable from one another. The work of a

forensic artist combine science and art in the fields of archeology and anthropology with

forensic methods. This paper will take you through the journey, beginning with the history

with the development of the early science to our modern techniques in forensic cases. It will

include case files of modern forensic facial reconstruction and reconstructions of famous

people that has been done throughout the years. The analyze and discussion will focus on the

problematic aspect of recreating a face for a human and the use of reconstruction in museums

and if it ́s a reliable enough to use in forensic police work.
