Contours of a human face.

This site section represents methods for physiognomic analyses of a human half-face (in profile or side-view), and also represents symbolical images of formal types of human faces which are systematized by means of trigrams, tetragrams, pentagrams, hexagrams or Kwa of the canon I Ching, that is new to modern western and eastern (oriental) physiognomy, but is based on knowledge about physical nature and morphology of a man which are natural similarity of basic and general laws of the godlike world.

The sixth, seventh and eighth pages describe physiognomic spheres of a forehead, a nose, lips and a chin in frameworks of the nine-level physiognomic system, and also the eighth page gives the information on proportional ratio of the sizes of a human half-face agrees to different coordinates of measurement.
The ninth page describes the twelve-level physiognomic system which is image of the sacred Egyptian triangle with proportional attitude of geometrical sides 3:4:5.
