Perfect faces

I am often amazed at how the most unlikely of faces will translate beautifully to film. They can be original, unseen and quirky features but fully achieve to compel the viewer. Every so often though, one does find one of those perfect creatures that God took extra time with. Sort of the way Michelangelo laboured over the the most unnoticeable details in some obscure corner of the Sistine Chapel, because he knew it would be there for all time and the details is where art lives.

Well I stumbled upon this face and it is not quirky, perhaps not even original, but it is perfect. Every feature in this face is about as proportioned and breathtakingly beautiful as humanity can create.
