Independent Replication of the 3-D Structure of the Face


Belgian researcher Jeff Baure has implemented his own shape-from-shading algorithm and applied it to the Face. Preliminary results derived from Viking image 35A72 (below) corroborate earlier findings by Carlotto and O'Leary which show that the Face is rendered in three dimensions and, unlike natural stone formations, retains its facial appearance when viewed from different perspectives and under different lighting conditions.
