This average man’s mugshot map of Europe was created by averaging 10-24 male athletes from each European country included in the project.
Composite Faces of Europe was produced by Dienekes Pontikos, who runs an anthropological blog dedicated to human population genetics, physical anthropology, archaeology, and history. Unfortunately, Mr. Pontikos does not reveal how exactly he went about assembling the portraits for this map, but it would be interesting to know why these nearly 30 men, despite each being put together from apparently different national databases, look so eerily alike. The national stereotypes in terms of looks do come through tough.
