Quite interesting. She is a photo model. I think someone from her region would be able to recognize her. Let's see if other people would be able to do that too.

Absolute amateur decision - where Mediteranean meets Asian. In some pics she looks Italian in some Kazakh. Most likely Turkey or bit more East.

Alan

Absolutely wrong :satisfied:. I should know how Turks or the kind look like and I have never seen in my entire live a Turk with that look. I think in non of the images does she look Kazakh or Italian.

In second or fourth picture she has very Italian look to me, but I will let Angela comment. I've only seen Italians in TV, only visited Italy once.
In last picture her face has some Asiatic features. Basically when she looks in profile it seems Italian/Jewish to me, when frontal then oriental.

The last image mispresents her a bit imo. It's also the one which stands out the most.

I'm no expert for that region, but now I think she is kurdish ;-)

But I also think that she looks like some few Italians (not in general, and I've only seen them on TV!), but not Turkic, Kazakh or asian in any way, also not in the last pic.

I just saw this. She doesn't look Italian to me at all...too "Oriental" as in "eastern" looking. . She looks a bit like Queen Raina to me, so Circassian, or Adygei perhaps? Or perhaps you already said no to that because you included it in the South Caucasus? Then perhaps Ossetian or even Lezghin?

Adyghe are North Caucasians I didn't include them in the South.

You spot it, she is Ossetian.

She's really beautiful, I think. I wonder how much she looks like the ancient Sarmatians and Scythians? I also think the Circassian women are really beautiful.


Arvistro: In second or fourth picture she has very Italian look to me...

She does look more Italian in those pictures than in the others, and the figure is very "Italianate". It was indeed the last picture that showed the most "eastern" influence, and which convinced me she couldn't be Italian, although you can see it in the other pictures as well, I think.

The closest Italian analogy that occurs to me off hand is Pier Angeli, Sardinian by birth but with a Central Italian surname.

at first sight I din't see any evident trace of 'mongoloid' : she has the look of some special kind of 'mediterranean' with very little face, in particular the jaw: a short ovale face, typical of this type of southern "caucasian" by opposition to other ligneages of 'eurafrican' type or so called 'atlanto-mediterraneans', features caused by broad enough cheekbones compared to lower jaw very narrower breadth -

even with only frontal pictures I can see (am I wrong?) her broad cheekbones are not enough afore in her face to give her a 'mongoloid' aspect - and NO MONGOLOID EYELID FOLD - the only "eastern" feature would be the broad space between her eyes - so I should bet: central or southern Italian, but also even if less evident surrounding regions of Italy and even southern Europe (Spain, Greece, ad why not Turkey? Turkey faces are very variated, not only by regions, but also by individuals - Near eastern would not be excluded too ... and don't forget a model is a special choice for esthetic criteria, not everytime typical of a population mean -

good night

I answered before I red the last posts - OK I'm wrong for the very origin - but her kind of dominantly 'mediterranean' smallfaced type is not completely dismissed (where came the first Jews from?) that said I'll drink some glass of "perfumed" water to kill my shame -

Angela
16-11-14, 22:01
I may have confused people. When I said "Oriental", I didn't mean that she showed any obvious "Mongoloid" traits. Rather, I was using "Oriental" in the way that it was used in the 19th century to denote the "East". Often, that meant precisely the Caucasus, but it was sometimes broadened to include the entire Middle East.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circassian_beauties
During the Ottoman Empire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottoman_Empire) and Persian Safavid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safavid) and Qajar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qajar_Dynasty) dynasties, Circassian women living as slaves in the Sultan's Imperial Harem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial_Harem) and Shah's harems started to build their reputation as extremely beautiful and genteel, which then became a common trope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trope_%28literature%29) in Western Orientalism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orientalism).

Odd how these people (the Circassians and other people of the Caucasus) were at one point considered the "purest" Caucasians, as in "white" people, and now the "component" which is modal in them, the "West Asian" component, is apparently dis-prized on anthrofora. But then, who can figure out the peculiar logic of the racist mind?

joeyc
17-11-14, 10:04
She looks like a more robust (larger faced and shorter headed) depigmented Iraqi/Iranian. Just like every Caucasus native. Ossetians have also some mongoloid admixture (5-7%).

ok I have seen that type in Bulgaria, around Kazanlak and Haskovo,
and in Italy in Venice,

so if Isee it in Bulgaria, then she could have the Turkic characteristics,

ok then

Uzbek? kazak? Azeri ?????

in photo 2 and 4 she looks European
in photo 3 East asian, and in photo 5 Turk and mediterrean,
so she has Turk, but has a finetsa, a style different,

ok Azzer, Nakh, to kazak uzbek.

did she had any plastic surgery? just asking and kidding

Than surely you haven't seen enough. I even doubt that there are enough Georgians in Italy that you could have been able to see enough. These aren't the most typical Georgians but surely a significant number can look like that without Russian admixture.

Certainly there is a difference but I think the majority does look similar though.
Actually important is that Georgia does also have a number of non Georgian immigrant communities in it's country.

The groups who speak West Caucasian languages and who can be considered ethnic "Georgians" usually look similar, while the other communities differ.


I found a good website where differen't communities of Georgia are represented. You can tell apart the communities by looks and cultural costumes.
