Maria Ewing

I cannot explain my taste for this "picture" of Maria Ewing, found by accident on the internet. There's a whole website full of these here. I think the part above the forehead is not so pointy, but the picture is clearly her.

Maria is the only opera singer included in this set. I am assuming that if you wanted to do 3d animation, you could choose these heads as the faces for your characters, attach them to suitable stock bodies, add hair and outfits, and off you go.

Here's something a little more conventional.

Maria is an artist who specialized in very theatrical opera, may be regarded as a founder of the genre. She was most famous for two roles, both entirely outside her natural lyric soprano Fach: Carmen and Salome. She allowed nothing to stand in her way, even nudity.
