The authors have determined the position of the center of gravity of six isolated formolized heads by the suspension method, based on the work of the Bordeaux anthropologist, Beauvieux; in his opinion, the nasion-opisthion line (root of nose to posterior edge of the foramen magnum) characterizes the horizontality of the head, irrespective of species. The center of gravity is situated at the middle of the nasion-inion line (root of nose to external occipital protuberance), behind the sella… CONTINUE READING
