World’s most ‘typical’ human face is a 28-yr-old Chinese manMarch 5th, 2011 - 12:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 5 (ANI): The most typical human face in the world is a 28-year-old Chinese man, after experts discovered there are nine million of them in the world.
The ‘Face of Seven Billion’ image was created as a composite of 190,000 Chinese photos, but researchers believe the average person will come from India by 2030, reports the Daily Mail.
Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing made the composite image from the pictures they had collected over the course of ten years from several national technology research programmes.
It was developed for National Geographic’s ‘Population 7 Billion’ series on the human race, which also showed that males just about outnumber females in the world.
Digital artist Joe Lertola of Bryan Christie Design re-created the photo for the poster using 7,000 human figures.
The series also revealed how the world’s most typical person is right-handed, makes less than 12,000 dollars per year and has a mobile phone but no bank account. (ANI)
