The Average Woman's Face Around The World (PHOTO)

Canada found its "Most Perfect Woman" but what about the "average" woman?

Blogger Collin Spears has combined the faces of women around the world using technology from FaceResearch.org's "online face averager" to approximate the "average face" of women from 40 different countries.

Several websites including the Daily Mail and Jezebel recently falsely reported that scientists and FaceResearch.org were responsible for the images, even though it was Spears who created them as an art project two years ago.

"My lab was tangentially involved in that Mr Spears used the free online face averager on my lab’s website, but we had no other involvement in the project whatsoever."

Even though the results are not part of a study, they do lead to some interesting questions: How does one describe an "average" face? What is "average"? What does "average" mean to women across the world?

Tell us: What do you think of these images?
