King Tut's face reconstructed

As Aerosmith would say, 'Dude looks like a lady.' From the Beeb:

Scientists have carried out the first facial reconstructions of Egypt's most famous ancient king, Tutankhamun.

Three teams of forensic artists - French, Egyptian and American - built separate but similar models of the king's face using scans of his skull.

The French and Egyptians knew who they were recreating, but the Americans were not told where the skull came from.

The models of the boy king, who died 3,300 years ago, reveal a young man with plump cheeks and a round chin.

Must be the eye liner. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
