I'm pretty sure that i have already seen that face [emoji848] maybe Etruscan (the profile)? He look more Balkanic however..

I think Hellenistic, not Roman. Definitely not Etruscan.

Maybe Cato is onto something: Macedonian.

I'd say Alexander from those deepset, downward sloping eyes, but I don't remember Alexander as ever being portrayed with such a masterful, domineering nose, so maybe his father.

The nose and face together do say something near the Balkans to me.

You were both right!

It is Alexander, found in the tombs of vergina and made from ivory. 5 sculptures were found of this type of the rest of his family.

This one next to him is said to be his mother Olympias:

This is the famous one of Philip:

The level of realism of these works is the sign of a master of his craft. Either these are very good forgeries or they are more accurate than the more popularized ones we usually see which look quite fake in comparison e.g. :

I had actually not noticed downward sloping eyes until my girlfriend pointed it out in me and all my family. For her it was our most distinctive feature.

Are there any particular modern or ancient ethnic groups that you associate the most with this trait?

My completely unscientifically supported impression is that it is more common in southeastern and to some extent south central Europe than in the north of Europe. My eyes have a bit of that downward slope as well, which I didn't even notice myself, but which a make up person told me. She said to give myself a "happier" eye by using eye-liner that goes upwards.

When that trait is combined with a Dinaric nose I think Balkans or Macedonia. :)

Mostly, my guess was based on memories of Greek and Etruscan art where you see it.


Greek:

Etruscan:

Most Greek art doesn't represent people with that trait, of course.

Indeed, Archaic Greek art portrayed upward tilting eyes:

Why you compare Jesus, Moses and Muhammad with Alexander the Great? Thats nonsense.

I do not think so,

Nonsense are the 'prophets' you believe.

Not the true men
