    There are 14 types... but which one is yours?

    Scientist's study classifies different shapes of noses

    Professor Abraham Tamir toured shopping centres in Europe and Israel, taking candid photographs of people with interesting noses. He then sorted the 1,300 pictures and matched each with a face on a painting or other piece of art.

    This revealed there to be 14 types of nose, with classifications ranging from ‘fleshy’ to ‘celestial’.The most common, particularly among men, was the fleshy nose, best illustrated by Prince Philip, which featured on almost a quarter of all the faces studied.

    Writing in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, Professor Tamir says those with such a nose are likely to be generous, emotional, helpful and sensitive.

    Nose types from the Caucasus are missing in the list but mine is somewhat similar to The Greek and The Redknapp :):)
