mathematical relationship of the size of the features to each other and or to the head or with the width or length of the face
the vertical measurement of a part of a feature
The value of study of facial proportions…
1. Note the similarities in the size of facial features
2. Note the differences in size relationships
Everything is guided by

Bilateral form of the head and features
Most faces don’t match symmetrically, they’re asymmetrical:
Both eyes may not be the same width.
One side of the mouth may be wider than the other.
One side of the nose may be wider than the other.
One cheek may be more prominent than the other.
The ears exhibit the greatest differences in position, form and size.
The four surfaces of the face that exhibit a similarity of bilateral curvatures.
Forehead / Cheeks / Superior integumentary lip / Chin
Horizontally, the face is divided by ____ lines, which create ___ special zones

profile type; the forehead, upper lip and chin project to an imaginary vertical line. (The standard). Not any one feature protrudes or recedes more than the other two
Vertical (balanced/perindicular) profile
the most common profile type. The forehead recedes posteriorly from the eyebrows, while the chin recedes form the plane of the upper lip

lower lip and chin
the so called ideal shape. The cheekbones are wider than the cranium, and the cranium is slightly wider than the lower jaw. The entire face appears to be composed of soft, rounded curves
short, with full cheeks and a rounded, fuller jawline and a rounded cranium.
Cranium that exhibits the maximum amount of curvature throughout
appears to be short and composed of straight lines. The forehead, jawline, and cheeks are approximately the same width. The hairline is often straight. Exhibits very little curvature
appears slightly wider at the jawline than at the cheekbone and forehead. The forehead is the narrowest feature. Eyes are close-set. This is least common head shapes
Characterized by a jawline that is narrower than the cheekbone or forehead. The forehead is the widest feature of the face. Eyes are wide-set.
Characterized by wide cheekbones and narrow forehead and jawline. The greatest width is across the cheekbone
Long and narrow, the forehead and chin may be rounded or square. The nose usually long.
The organ of hearing consisting of the external ear, the middle ear, and the internal ear
these change less in a lifetime than any other facial feature
the ear is made of
(except the lobe)
ANATOMICAL STRUCTURES OF THE TEMPORAL BONE USED FOR LOCATING THE MODELED EAR:
external auditory meatus
divides length of the ear in half; gives approximation of ear
hinged portion of mandibular articulation; located behind and below the ear passage; gives us general idea of where ear passage is
internal ear bones
(these have no effect on surface form)
hollows or cavities of the ear
the orifice that leads into the hearing organ. Is not visible from the frontal view or from the direct profile view
a hollow or cavities; concave shell of the ear; located behind and above the ear passage; deepest depression of the ear; its vertical dimension can be cut in half or divided into a couple of sections because of the crust (leg) that comes through
a hollow or cavity; second deepest depression of the ear. Bifurcation between the crura of the antihelix
a hollow or cavity; shallowest depression of the ear. Fossa between inner and outer rims of the ear. Sometimes it very tough to find this
opening between tragus and antitragus, “spillway” of the ear
elevations or ridges
1. Helix & crus
2. Antihelix & crura
the question mark shaped outer rim of the ear. It begins superior to the lobe and ends by attaching to the cheek. The outer rim of the ear
the origin of the outer rim lying in the concha. The crus is lateral to (lies upon) the zygomatic arch. Can originate in the anterior area of the concha. ????
Crus of the helix
the inner rim of the ear, it is wider than the helix
the bifurcation of the antihelix referred to as the anterior and superior branches
the depression between the crura and the helix.
the shallowest depression lying posteriorly between the inner and outer rims
concave shell of the ear, marks the middle one third (1/3) of the ear, deepest depression of the ear
the small elevation arising from the cheek and protecting the ear passage.
small eminence obliquely opposite of the tragus. It is located on the superior border of the earlobe
the hollow between the tragus and antitragus, anteriorly on the upper border of the lobe
the fatty inferior one third (1/3) of the ear. Does not have any cartilage.
Its anterior border attaches to the face or cheek
