It has been said that the “beautiful people” of the world (those people that most everyone can agree have stunning facial features), are the same people that also have very symmetrical faces. So perfect are the lines that one half of the face is a mirrror image of the other half.
I’ve often thought this to be true of Adam. From forehead, to eyes, to nose, to jaw and chin — almost identical from one side to the other. Then comes the album cover. Almost everyone can see the male and female, or the yin and yang, within the same picture. And yet somehow, it looks like Adam, but then again, it doesn’t.
These are the two halves, merged together with themselves to make two different faces. Quite interesting, don’t you think? The thinner face with the hand is more feminine, the wider face with the stronger jawline is more masculine.
My hypothesis is that if we found another straight on shot of Adam, and did the same experiment, the results would be two pictures that look more like the second picture. What do you think?
Thanks to ChzR for posting the original links on this site!
And thanks Adam, for letting us play with your face. Afterall, you are here for our entertainment!
