Meet The Average Women From Around The World

image

The concept of the average woman gets thrown around a lot, but now thanks to a group of experimental psychologists in Scotland, we might actually have a face to put to the idea.

The minds at the University of Glasgow have published a collection of images that depict the estimated average faces of women from around the world. The photos were generated by aligning multiple pictures of female volunteers and compositing them together to create an approximate “average face.”

Although the details about how the women were selected and how many were used has not been revealed, we’re certainly stunned by how gorgeous “average” is (such glowing complexions!). The pretty factor has even been a subject of controversy for those who think the photos are too attractive, which is potentially a result of the process for making the images.

These combo pics were produced by taking the average measurements and shapes of the subjects’ features, then blending them together for a clear final product. This method ultimately erases any singular issues or distinguishable characteristics away.

Regardless of looks, we think it’s definitely an interesting glimpse at ladies from across the globe.

What do you think of the photos?
