Egyptian bust of Queen Nefertiti - (Neues Museum, Berlin) - The Nefertiti Bust is a 3,300-year-old painted limestone bust of Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, and one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt. Owing to the work, Nefertiti has become one of the most famous women of the ancient world, and an icon of feminine beauty. The work is believed to have been crafted in 1345 BC by the sculptor Thutmose. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nefertiti_Bust

In the late 1880s, the body of a 16-year-old girl was pulled from the Seine. She was apparently a suicide, as her body showed no marks of violence, but her beauty and her enigmatic smile led a Paris pathologist to order a plaster death mask of her face. In 1958 the anonymous girl’s features were used to model the first-aid mannequin Rescue Annie. Though the girl’s identity remains a mystery, her face, it’s said, has become “the most kissed face of all time.”

In Guizhou, China, a 64-year-old man has a bizarre facial anomaly.

On 24 Sept. 1944, 1st Lt. Mary Louise Hawkins was evacuating 24 patients from the fighting at Palau to Guadalcanal when the C-47 made a forced landing.
