The Somerton Man Case. The body of a man found on an Australian beach close to a major Atomic Testing ground, he was probably poisoned, a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and an unbroken Code page found and associated to him. Set against a Cold War background in 1948, was this man a spy? We think so and this blog focuses on the evidence that was left behind and in some cases missed, the Code page, Dry Cleaning numbers, A Poem and a small, torn piece of paper bearing the words TAMAM SHUD.

SOMERTON MAN: Progressive 3D Image, Post 2.

Post 2: Full Face Stage 2.

The work done on this 3D image development is painstaking, whilst we are using all of the known images of  SM, some of the detail is hard to define. For example the exact shape of the chin when he was alive, in death all of the muscles relax and fluid can gather but we are making every effort to ensure his facial features are as true to life as we can make them.

The next few days will focus on sculpting this image to ensure the details such as chin angles, lip shape, eye, brow and forehead are correct. After that we will start to add texture and light colouring before moving on to adding eyes and hair.

If you have some comments to make please do so, all input is valued.
